Public Involvement activities will be closely tied to the technical portion of the study and its project development process. Meetings with the public will be held to provide project information on Wadsworth Road Intersections and to seek comment. Conducting large-scale meetings will encourage public attendance and foster public awareness of project developments and alternatives that are being evaluated. These meetings will also provide a forum for general public input, including concerns and comments regarding project alternatives.
- Public Information Meeting #1 (Late Summer 2014) will serve to initiate the project and educate stakeholders on the project process and study area. It also provides an opportunity for the public to share its perspective regarding transportation issues and project concerns.
- Public Information Meeting #2 (Spring 2016) will serve to present preliminary alternatives that will be developed with the assistance of the SIG, data collection, and feedback from the kick-off Public Meeting, and engineering analysis.
The third and final Public Information Meeting for US-41 intersection improvements (Late 2017) will present the Preferred Alternative for public review and comment.
The Public Information Meetings will be in an open house format and will include exhibits to provide background information. Study team representatives will be available to answer questions and listen to comments and concerns.
The Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) cordially invites you to attend the third Public Information Meeting concerning improvements to the intersections of Wadsworth Road at Dilleys Road and Kilbourne Road. The purpose of the meeting is to seek public comment on the Preferred Alternative for Wadsworth Road at Dilleys Road and Kilbourne Road intersections. Project information will be provided, including the Phase I Study Process, public involvement, and the Preferred Alternatives (design and evaluation).
LCDOT is also seeking public comment on the use of property from Wadsworth Savanna Forest Preserve associated with improvements to the Wadsworth Road at Kilbourne Road intersection. This property is owned and operated by the Lake County Forest Preserve District and is protected by Section 4(f) of the U.S. Department of Transportation Act of 1966.
