The Jefferson Parkway Public Highway Authority (JPPHA) will be holding several open houses during the next several months to provide opportunities for the public to obtain information from various agencies who have a role in approving the project.
A community forum was held Wednesday, September 27 at the Three Creeks K-8 school in Candelas. There was a formal presentation by members of the Authority Board, a Q & A session and conversation about the noise study analysis, the status of the parkway generally and other topics of interest to the community. A summary of the meeting will be posted soon on the JPPHA website.
