Public meetings are frequently held around the state on transportation planning issues. If one is scheduled in your community, it will normally be announced on the On-line Public Notice site.

Most of these meetings deal with specific plans or projects directly affecting the community and are scheduled by the responsible project manager within DOT&PF.
