Come hear about and help plan for this future transportation corridor. The Inner Belt Loop Corridor Study will examine the proposed corridor from the terminus of Skyway Drive and Alkali Creek to Highway 3. The study will evaluate the challenges of the proposed roadway, develop an access plan that will include bike/pedestrian infrastructure, storm water management strategies and evaluate future impacts to the corridor by new development activity.
