The City of Toledo will host a community open house from 4 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 in the Rosa Parks Elementary School library to review upcoming development in the areas of the Phillips/Willys/I-75 interchange and a study to examine the surrounding streets, traffic patterns and potential changes that will occur during future construction.
The project study area is bounded by Willys Parkway on the south and west, i-75 from Willys to Haverhill and Haverhill from I-75 to Phillips on the west, Phillips from Haverhill to Manhattanon the north, Blanchard and Cottage on the east and Central on the south.
Citizens who live or work in the area or frequently traffic the streets during their commute are encouraged to stop in at anytime, however formal presentations about the overall scope of the street study will be given at 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Team representatives will have displays showing current street systems, information on upcoming changes in the area and proposals for possible solutions. There will be an opportunity to speak with members of the street study team or submit comments through a written questionnaire made available at the meeting or online at www.toledo.oh.gov.
Feedback collected through the open house will be used to develop alternatives, including an evaluation of the I-75 and Overland Industrial Park changes and the impacts on travel patterns and traffic volumes. Two additional meetings will be held in the coming months as the study refines various options and the team prepares recommendations for improvements.
