A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday to hear input on a list of Greensboro transportation projects.

The list was put together by the city's Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization. The group of projects is being considered for funding in the development of the state's 2026 to 2035 Transportation Improvement Program.

Transportation Planner Craig McKinney says once the list is approved it will be sent to the state department of transportation and considered in a prioritization process.

"A prioritization process is a two-part scoring process to determine the ranking order of projects," he says. "It's a qualitative and quantitative scoring process."

Road and signal improvements on West Gate City Boulevard are some of the projects included. Upgrading bike lanes and sidewalks between Cone Boulevard and Bryan Park Road are among others.

The meeting will take place at city hall from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Residents can also register online to participate via Zoom. People can review and comment on the recommended project list through Sept. 12. It is scheduled for approval on Sept. 20.
