The section is about three miles between County Road 312 and U.S. Highway 72. MDOT prepared three alternatives that have been modified to address public comments from a similar public meeting in July 2011.
Written comments received by Oct. 25 will be taken into consideration for a final plan. At this time there is no designated preferred alternative; however, the majority of Walnut residents present at Thursday's meeting preferred the alternative that transforms Hwy. 15 into a five-lane road and leaves the intersection with U.S. 72.
