Berckmans sign

A public meeting is scheduled today for the proposed widening of Berckmans Road and its realignment with Alexander Drive. The $20.3 million proposal is one of many local projects that await funding from the transportation tax.

Five concepts for the project, which will require land and rights-of-way acquisitions, will be presented at the meeting from 4 to 7 p.m. at Julian Smith Casino, 2200 Broad St.
