    GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- The Grand Traverse County Road Commission is asking residents for their input on transportation needs.

    The county is hosting an open house Monday night to get feedback on solutions to county-wide issues.

    The meeting is at East Middle School from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

    Maps and other information will be available for residents to look over.

    Team members from the project will also be available to answer questions, as well.

    Anyone who isn't able to make it to the meeting can review information of the road commission website.

    The commission will be accepting comments from residents until March 1.

    Below are the additional steps in the study process:


    Early March: Planning and engineering team led by OHM Advisors refines Practical Solutions based on public feedback and conducts traffic modeling for each solution.
    Draft Preferred Solutions will then be the outcome of this process.

    Mid-March: Preferred Solutions and outcomes of traffic modeling presented to local agency groups, stakeholders groups, and public for review and feedback.
    Public meeting late March/early April.

    Early April: Further refinements to potential solutions based on feedback from local agency groups, stakeholders, and the public. Planning and engineering team prepares final report.
