Public meeting scheduled for WIS 38 (Northwestern Avenue) in Racine County
Meeting to focus on proposed improvements and construction staging


Oct. 1, 2014

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Regional Office in Waukesha is announcing a public involvement meeting for the upcoming reconstruction of WIS 38 (Northwestern Avenue) from Golf Avenue to Memorial Drive in the city of Racine. The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, at John Paul II Academy Klas Hall (School Gym), 2023 Northwestern Avenue, Racine, WI.
The proposed work includes the reconstruction of Northwestern Avenue from Golf Avenue to Memorial Drive. Existing pavement will be replaced with new concrete pavement. Curb and gutter and sidewalk (within the area impacted by the proposed improvement) will also be replaced. A roundabout will be built at both Albert Street/West High Street and Spring Street intersections. The signal at High Street will also be replaced.
Proposed improvements will be constructed in two stages. One travel lane in the eastbound direction will be provided during both stages. Access to businesses and residents will be maintained during construction. Construction is currently scheduled for 2016, but it could be moved to 2015.    
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input, and ask questions concerning this project. Maps showing the proposed improvement will be on display. WisDOT, City of Racine, and consultant representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.
