LCG Public Works will host a town hall meeting Monday night about the upcoming closure of Dulles Drive.

The roadway is being closed to traffic between N. Domingue and Westgate Road beginning on Tuesday, February 4.

Public Works says that the project entails the widening of Dulles Drive from two lanes to three from the eastern side of its intersection with Westgate Road through Ambassador Caffery.

The stretch of Dulles will be closed for about a year-and-a-half for the project.

The complete project will take two and a half years and include subsurface drainage, sidewalks and street lights.

The bridge will be replaced and a roundabout and additional turn lanes will be constructed at N. Domingue Road and Ambassador Caffery.

Tonight's town hall starts at 6:00 at the West Regional Library in Scott.
