Phase 1 Currently Underway
During Phase 1, the County staff and consulting team, led by AECOM, are creating an Existing Conditions Report and evaluating the Lee Highway Visioning Study created in 2016. The County has appointed Community Forum and Working Group members to advise throughout the process. Additionally, LHA has established several committees that provide feedback/recommendations and assist with community engagement for PLH.
