Beforewe analyze the short list of alternatives, we hope to get specific feedback on how to make the design of eachone as good as it can be, said Secretary Terrill.At the workshops the consultants will present the detailed design of the eight alternatives and solicit commentsand suggestions from the public. The alternatives will be further refined after the workshops and then analyzedfor environmental impact.Each workshop will focus on a separate part of the project area so we can have in-depth discussions, saidTerrill. The public will have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with the designers.The workshop on Tuesday February 7 at Williston Town Hall is being hosted by the Williston PlanningCommission; it will focus on the Route 2A corridor from I-89 to the Winooski River. Wednesdays workshopat Essex High School will focus on Five Corners and Route 2A in Essex Junction. The Thursday February 9workshop will focus on the Circ A/B corridor in Williston.
