The City of Midland will hold a public meeting to discuss the proposed extension of Beal Parkway to Thomason Drive on Tuesday, Oct. 14 in the cafeteria of Anson Jones Elementary School (4919 Shadylane Dr.).
Engineers will be available to answer questions from the public regarding the project during an open house starting at 6:30 p.m. with a formal presentation beginning at 7 p.m.
The proposed project is intended to improve traffic circulation and access to properties along the Loop 250 frontage road. The extension of Beal Parkway would provide a new connection to Thomason Drive and will reduce traffic in adjacent neighborhoods. A roundabout is also proposed at the intersection of Thomason Drive and Illinois Avenue to provide a safer interchange of traffic between the three roadways.
Maps and drawings regarding the project will be displayed at the public meeting. In addition, display materials will be available in Suite 510 at City Hall (300 N. Loraine) until Oct. 21. Anyone interested in attending the public meeting who has special communication needs or requires physical accommodations is encouraged to call 432-685-7593 at least three days before the meeting.###
