 County holds open house for Woodbury Drive project

An open house with the opportunity for residents to gather information regarding the upcoming reconstruction of Woodbury Drive (County Road 19) from Park Crossing to just south of Bailey Road is planned for 4:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Woodbury City Hall, 8301 Valley Creek Road.

Residents can learn more about the phasing schedule for major construction beginning in 2013, utility relocations occurring now through 2013, landscaping and aesthetic amenities proposed along the corridor, and the innovative storm water reuse systems that will be installed during construction.

The meeting will be an open house format to allow ample time to view the materials and ask questions of project staff.  Attendees are welcome to come and go at any time during the two-hour timeframe.
