Open house June 18 for safety improvements near McArthur Lake on US-95

The public is invited to an open house next Tuesday, June 18 to learn about safety improvements planned for US-95 near McArthur Lake south of Naples.

The meeting will last from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Naples Elementary (145 Schoolhouse Road), with members of the public welcome to attend at any time to ask questions and give comment.

Planned to start construction in 2022, improvements include reconstructing one mile of the highway to realign sharp curves and replace the culvert at Deep Creek.

The culvert will be replaced with a 300-foot bridge with enough clearance for wildlife to pass underneath rather than cross the highway.

More information is available at itdprojects.org/us95mcarthurlake, and comments will be accepted online until July 2.
