Keeping You Informed is Important to Us

Community Meetings
Keeping the public informed about the PGBT Widening Project is a top priority for NTTA during construction. Informational meetings for members of the public will be scheduled and announced, as needed.

Invite us to your next event!
The NTTA team can meet with your civic club, homeowners association, tenants or company staff members. We can offer a brief presentation, answer your questions and provide handouts that you may share with others. Contact us at SpeakersBureau@NTTA.org.

 

Business Information Group (B.I.G.) Meetings

NTTA’s Business Information Group (B.I.G.) meetings are designed to keep business owners and managers current with progress on the PGBT Widening Project. NTTA personnel and consultants, and sometimes representatives from our partners, provide brief presentations about the projects during the sessions. 

A date for the next B.I.G. meeting has not been set. NTTA personnel will issue notices here and they will also be sent electronically to B.I.G. members prior to the meetings.
