- For audio only: The project website contains a conference call number and conference ID to join the meeting via phone. You will be able to listen to the presentation and provide comment or ask questions.
The purpose of this meeting is to familiarize the public, adjacent property owners and interested parties with the potential improvement alternatives and
obtain your comments and feedback. Project staff will conduct a live presentation and share improvement alternatives, maps, displays and exhibits via live Microsoft Teams video. A question, answer and comment period will follow the live presentation.
The purpose of the project is to continue providing a safe, reliable crossing for Oregon/Jackson Street over the Fox River. Any bridge improvement will address structural and geometric deficiencies of the existing bridge, maintain safe access and passage for all users including motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, persons with disabilities, and waterway users, meet transportation demand, and comply as much as possible with all state, regional and local plans, including city redevelopment planning.
The project design website includes current bridge deficiencies noted in recent inspections, replacement or rehabilitation improvement alternatives, detailed displays and exhibits showing various alternatives, proposed schedule for design and construction, and details on providing comment during the ongoing bridge study.
