The informational meetings, which were held at the MetroTech Center, showed residents the scope of the project, which will repair the road between Atlantic Avenue and Sands Street.

Department of Transportation officials estimate the project will cost $295 million. The renovation Web site says the project will receive federal and state funding and will take several years.
