Why are we conducting a virtual public open house?

The city of Kenton, in cooperation with ODOT, is hosting a virtual public open house for this project, to present project information, including the potential impacts, and receive your input. This online presentation is being used to allow us to continue the important responsibility of engaging with the public about transportation projects. We encourage and welcome your comments and questions.
