Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is
scheduled to begin an intersection
reconstruction of WIS 145 and Donges Bay Road,
in Washington County. With the intersection
among the top five percent of intersections
statewide for crash severity, it will be
reconstructed into a roundabout. Studies have
shown roundabouts increase safety and decrease
the severity of collisions.
interested in the project are encouraged to
attend a public involvement meeting (PIM) on
Monday, April 11 at the Germantown
Community Library (Community Meeting Room –
Large Side), N112 W16957 Mequon Road,
Germantown, Wisconsin. The meeting runs from 5
to 7 p.m., and will be conducted as an open
house. No formal presentations are scheduled.
Project plans, detour routes and other exhibits
will be on display to illustrate the work in
detail. Representatives of WisDOT will be on
hand to provide information on the project and
to receive input.
Since the last PIM,
WisDOT and the prime contractor, Michels Corp.,
have revised the initial design schedule to
decrease construction duration. The current
schedule of operations will be split into two
stages, which are summarized below.
- Long-term full closure of Donges Bay Road at
WIS 145 (same as initial design)
- One-week full closure of WIS 145 at Donges
