NW Business Corridor open house June 23

Posted Jun 22, 2020 2:18 AM

Ellis County Public Works will host an open house for the proposed improvements to 230th Avenue and Feedlot Road on June 23. The purpose of the Northwest Business Corridor project is to improve access, safety and economic development in this quickly developing area north of the city of Hays.

Ellis County Public Works proposes to reconstruct approximately four miles of roadway that will serve as a county road extension of the current U.S. 183 Bypass around the city of Hays. The proposed roadway will consist of two 12-foot lanes and 8-foot shoulders and intersection improvements that will accommodate the turning of large trucks.

The Northwest Business Corridor Open House will be held June 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Schenk Building, Ellis County Fairgrounds, 1344 Fairground Road.

Attendees are encouraged to attend the open house and can come and go at their own convenience. No formal presentation will be given, but preliminary project exhibits will be available for public viewing. Ellis County and Driggs Design Group staff will be in attendance to answer questions and will accept public comments regarding the proposed project improvements.
