Working with Stakeholders

The Key Stakeholders (KeyS) Committee serves as a conduit to share project information between the Project Team and the community as the project progresses. The KeyS Committee was formed during the Feasibility Study to collaborate with the Study Team and provide input into the development and advancement of potential solutions. They provide valuable information regarding:

  • Proposed construction phasing and detours
  • Draft improvement concepts
  • Multi-modal transportation opportunities
  • Potential safety enhancements
  • Environmental and community concerns
