More than 100 people turned out Wednesday night to get a preliminary look at plans to give a make-over to South MacArthur Boulevard.  Alderman Joe McMenamin acknowledges the project to improve the area will take a few years.

“It is about the fourth step in a long process but we have the TIF funding in place and we have Hy-Vee coming.  That itself was a huge effort but, MacArthur is having a big come-back and that is reflected by the enthusiasm (tonight)” says McMenamin.

The project will study traffic signals, drainage, street-scaping, and mass transit accomodations.  A feasibility study should be conducted by the end of this year with road construction starting in 2015.
