Public meeting set for US 12 in Walworth County
Meeting to focus on alternatives for improving the roadway


March 6, 2013

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is announcing a public information meeting to begin to gather input for the rehabilitation of US 12 from WIS 20 south to the US 12/WIS 67 split in Walworth County.

The meeting is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday March 13, 2013 in the drill room at the Elkhorn Wisconsin Army National Guard facility located at 401 Fair Avenue, Elkhorn, WI 53121.

The purpose of the meeting is to introduce the project, review conceptual exhibits of proposed improvements, and obtain input that will assist the Department in further refinement of the improvements. The Department is proposing to rehabilitate the pavement structure of US 12. Additional improvements will include geometric improvements at minor side road intersections, evaluation of intersection improvements at the major side intersections of County A, County ES, and Potters Road including signalized and roundabout intersection types, and evaluation for improved bike and pedestrian accommodations within the corridor. The exhibits will show potential impacts anticipated with the proposed improvements. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions concerning this project. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.
