Community members in the Olivia area are encouraged to attend a virtual meeting for the Highway 71 resurfacing project scheduled for next year.

The project includes the resurfacing of Highway 71 from just south of Viking Drive to the intersection of Highway 212 and Highway 71. The project also includes the updating of sidewalks, driveways, and pedestrian crossings to meet Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards. New sidewalk will be constructed to connect with existing sidewalk in areas. A bypass lane (southbound) at Viking Drive will also be added as part of the overall project.

The Highway 71 virtual meeting allows participants the opportunity to learn more about the project, ask questions and give feedback. The virtual meeting is posted on the project webpage or by visiting Community members are invited to attend as it is convenient for them.
