ABQ RIDE will host five public meetings at the end of Feb. and the beginning of March, 2016 to update the public on the latest information concerning Albuquerque Rapid Transit.
Participants at these meetings will get a chance to meet the ART project’s Construction Manager at Risk, Bradbury Stamm, along with some of the managers associated with the project. They will then be asked to break into smaller groups, where they can discuss ways to reduce issues arising from construction. The gathered information will then be shared with the rest of the meeting’s participants and ART team members.
Here is the meetings schedule:
•Wednesday, Feb. 24, 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m., Special Collections Library, 423 Central NE (at Edith)
