Public meeting for WIS 24 (W. Forest Home Ave.) and Milwaukee County N (92nd St.)
Open house to discuss design plans for intersection

 

Jan. 23, 2017

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is announcing a public involvement meeting to discuss proposed highway safety improvements to the intersection of WIS 24 and County N, in Milwaukee County. The meeting will take place at Greenfield City Hall Common Council Chambers 7325 W. Forest Home Ave., Greenfield, WI 53220 on Wednesday, February 1, 2017, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The meeting will be conducted in an open house format. The objective of this meeting is to familiarize the public with the purpose and need for the project and to obtain input on the proposed improvements. No formal presentation will be given. Representatives of the WisDOT will be available to discuss the proposed project and address any questions or concerns.

The purpose of the proposed project is to improve the safety and operations of this intersection. This intersection is in close proximity to the Oak Leaf Trail, and there has been a history of right-angle (T-bone) motorist crashes and crashes involving pedestrians and bicyclists. Traffic signals will be added as well as a westbound left-turn lane on mainline WIS 24. Installation of a traffic signal can be expected to reduce the number of angle crashes and improve the safety of bike and pedestrian crossings.

Design alternatives will be shown at the meeting. We encourage the public to attend the meeting and provide comments. After gathering input at this meeting, design modifications will be explored and the preferred alternative will be presented at a future public meeting.

Construction is anticipated in 2019.
