Jefferson County’s Transportation and Engineering Division completed a preliminary design for the JC-73 improvement project and is looking for input from the community. Included in the project is approximately a half mile segment of JC-73 between Buffalo Park Road and Plettner Lane. An online feedback form will be available through Dec. 31. Visit the JC-73 project website to get all of the project details, view videos and complete the feedback form.
In September 2020, after different designs were considered and public input, a preferred alternative was identified to move into final design. A consultant is currently completing the preliminary design, with the final design anticipated to be completed in the Summer of 2022. The construction phase of the project is anticipated to begin in Spring 2023 and be completed by Summer of 2024.
Due to restrictions associated with COVID-19, the opportunity to provide feedback will be virtual, with more than a month for citizens to provide input. Community input is important to determining whether the improvements meet expectations related to the preliminary design. Community members are encouraged to view a project video that highlights the existing roadway features and traffic conditions along the corridor, the proposed traffic conditions, and the recommended intersection and corridor improvements. After viewing the video, the community is encouraged to complete the feedback form to provide input. The comment form will be available until 11:00 p.m. Dec. 31, 2021.
