Public meeting for WIS 60 & County Y Intersection in Ozaukee County
Meeting to focus on preliminary alternatives for WIS 60/County Y intersection improvements

 

Feb. 11, 2014


The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Region is announcing a public involvement meeting (PIM) to discuss alternative concepts for the WIS 60 and County Y intersection in western Ozaukee County. The meeting is scheduled from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on February 11, 2014 at the Cedarburg Town Hall, 1293 Washington Ave, Cedarburg, WI.

 

The intersection improvements are being proposed to relieve traffic congestion on County Y in the morning and evening. Crash severity has also been identified as a concern at the intersection. Alternatives under consideration include reconstructing the intersection with traffic signals and turn lanes, or constructing a roundabout. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input, and discuss the intersection project with WisDOT representatives. The WIS 60 / County Y project is currently scheduled for construction in 2020.


If you are unable to attend the meeting, or would like more information, contact Heather Sackman at

Citizens who are hearing-impaired and require an interpreter may request one by contacting Heather Sackman at least three working days prior to the meeting via the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System (dial 711).

 

WIS 60 Corridor Study Update

WisDOT is also separately performing a corridor study on WIS 60 from the US 45 interchange in Jackson to 11th Avenue in Grafton. WisDOT anticipates presenting alternatives for the corridor to the public at separate PIMs in 2014. The purpose of the study is to identify long-range needs and alternatives for future improvements to WIS 60 to address emerging congestion and safety issues and to help local communities plan for the future. WisDOT is currently evaluating alternatives for the WIS 60 mainline roadway and intersections.
