Public Meeting for Stormwater Project Along Murphy Boulevard Set for October 7

(Joplin, MO) – The City of Joplin will soon begin construction on a stormwater project near Lone Elm Road and Murphy Boulevard. The work includes replacing the existing double box culvert on Murphy Boulevard, west of Lone Elm Road, with a triple box culvert. The improvements will allow for more efficient stormwater conveyance as well as an opportunity to increase safety for motorists by widening the road and installing curb and gutter.

An open house public meeting with City engineers and representatives of the City’s design engineer firm of Allgeier, Martin and Associates has been scheduled for Thursday, October 7 from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm in the cafeteria of Columbia Elementary School, 610 W. F. Street. Citizens are welcome to come any time during these hours to view the preliminary plans and ask questions about the upcoming project.

This project was included in the ¼-cent Parks and Stormwater Sales Tax approved by voters in August 2012.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like to discuss the project, please contact Steven Martinez at 417.624.0820, ext. 1531 or Dan Johnson at 417.624.0820, ext. 1538.
