(Joplin, MO) – With the appraisal process and right of way acquisition underway for the 32nd Street widening project, the City of Joplin is holding a meeting for area property owners to view the final design plans along with construction timelines and discuss utility relocations. Representatives of Olsson and Associates, the engineering/design consultant for the street improvements, as well as city engineering staff, will be available to discuss the project.
