The City of Naperville is hosting a public hearing to present the preferred alternative for improvements to the intersection of 95th Street and Book Road. The public hearing will take place on Thursday, June 6, at 7 p.m. in conjunction with the City of Naperville Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) meeting. The TAB meeting will be held in the City Council Chambers of the Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle St.
A brief presentation on the status of the project and the proposal under consideration will begin at 7 p.m. and will be followed by an opportunity for the public to comment on the preferred alternative. Preliminary reports including environmental documents and an engineering analysis with drawings, maps and aerial photography will be available. Representatives of the project team will be present before and after the TAB meeting to discuss the project with anyone interested.
The City has identified the need for improvements at the intersection of 95th Street and Book Road that will increase safety, reduce delay and improve operations. Preliminary engineering to assess existing conditions and determine optimal improvements will be completed in 2019. Construction is currently planned for 2021.
