Hanshaw Road reconstruction meeting

It's slightly outside of the Town of Dryden, but I just received a postcard notifying me of a meeting tomorrow night about Hanshaw Road reconstruction. Here's the text of the card, in case anyone wants to attend:

Ladies and Gentlemen:

You are invited to a public meeting regarding reconstruction of Hanshaw Road between Sapsucker Woods Road and the Cayuga Heights Village Line, Thursday, February 17, at 7:00pm at the DeWitt Middle School Cafeteria, 560 Warren Road.

Discussion will focus on issues of pavement and alignment; traffic volume, speed, accidents, and destinations; roadside hazards; drainage; pedestrians/bicyclists/safety; social concerns; aesthetics; environment; and local economy.

Design will begin following the meeting. Design alternatives will be developed over the next several months and presented for public review in the late spring or summer. Construction is planned for 2006. Federal and state will fund up to 95% of the work.

For more information, please contact John Lampman at Tompkins County Highway Division, 170 Bostwick Road, Ithaca, NY 14850, (607) 274-0307 or email at "jlampman@tompkins-co.org".

It's nice to see a public meeting this early in the process.
