The Manning Avenue project will include improvements from Watkins Street to South Lafayette Drive, and the North Main Street project will include improvements from East Calhoun Street to North Lafayette Drive.
The primary focus of the two projects - both 2016 Capital Penny Sales Tax projects - is to revitalize and improve pedestrian facilities and include safety and Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility improvements. The meeting will also address roadway deficiencies, landscaping and lighting possibilities.
During the meeting, the public will be asked to provide input about the proposed improvements and be encouraged to review the various displays that will be available. An outcome of this meeting will be an understanding of the community's desires for the type, style and character of these sections of road.
The meeting will be held by the city and county of Sumter - in partnership with Sumter Urban Area Transportation Study, South Carolina Department of Transportation and U.S. Federal Highway Administration.
