By Craig Shultz
Beaumont will host a community meeting on the new Potrero Interchange on Thursday, Jan. 18.
The 6 p.m. event is at the Civic Center. Falcon Engineering, the project management contractor, and city officials will give an overview of the project’s design, construction hours and potential noise and detour information.
The project includes construction of a six-lane bridge to extend Potrero Boulevard over the 60 Freeway, building a connection ramp on Western Knolls to Potrero north of the freeway and include some freeway widening.
City officials say the project will improve safety and air quality, ease congestion and unlock 2,000 acres for commercial and industrial building. Construction is expected to begin in February.
