Public input opportunity for Canal Rd. corridor study
Informational meeting scheduled Nov. 7 at Adult Activity Center
The City of Gulf Shores will host a Public Involvement Meeting for the Canal Road Corridor Study on Thursday, November 7, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Adult Activity Center, located at 260 Clubhouse Drive. The purpose of the meeting is to provide the public an opportunity to participate in the development of the proposed project.
The previously shown roadway build alignments have been revised/modified as more engineering information has become available and in response to comments received from stakeholders and the public during the public involvement meeting held for the project in May.
A brief presentation will be given at 6 p.m. After the presentation, representatives from the City of Gulf Shores will be available at displays to discuss the proposed project and answer any questions.
The purpose of the proposed project is to improve connectivity and provide a transportation corridor that will better accommodate the existing and projected east-west traffic volumes through the study area. The need for the project is derived from the increased traffic congestion along SR 180 (Canal Road) and along the existing neighborhood streets.
Comment sheets will also be made available for those who would like to submit written statements. Written statements may be mailed or e-mailed within 21 days after the meeting date to Volkert, Inc.; 1110 Montlimar Drive; Mobile, Alabama 36609. For more info is also available by calling 251-342-1070 or emailing Jason.firstname.lastname@example.org.
