On Monday, the four public sessions were announced.

"This exciting new process will allow the community to be involved in the project from the very beginning," Hopkins said. "We know how important this is for the community. We need access to your thoughts and feelings about this project, and these listening sessions will give us that opportunity."

Some residents have expressed concern that the project will push traffic into their communities.
