On Thursday, February 23, 2023, the Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) hosted the initial public meeting on the Lewis Avenue Corridor Modernization Study. The meeting provided an opportunity for the public to learn about the study and existing analysis, and review maps and exhibits. The study team was on hand to answer questions and take feedback.

This was the first public involvement activity for this project, with a second public information meeting anticipated to be held in early 2024, prior to the completion of the Phase I engineering study.
