A public hearing will be held at the Franklin County Extension office, 561 W. Oneida, on Thursday, May 9, from 4-7 p.m. to answer questions and provide information on a proposed East Oneida road reconstruction project.
Preston and Franklin County have been working together for a number of years to reconstruct East Oneida beginning at the intersection of 600 East and ending at the intersection of 1200 East.
The main purpose of this road-improvement project is to increase safety through improved sight distance, especially in two hollow areas, according to city engineer Darek Kimball. Further road pavement deterioration will also be remedied by this project scheduled to start in 2016, he said.
Kimball said improvements include:
• sidewalks, ribbon curb and drainage swales in the city limits
• road widening with paved shoulders and drainage swales in the county
Kimball said city, county and project staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about potential right-of-way impacts. A hearing officer will be on hand for those who would like to provide public comment on the project, he said.
