Public meeting set for WIS 167 and Country Aire Drive intersection in Washington County
Open house on proposed reconstruction of intersection


Oct. 13, 2015

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Region in Waukesha is announcing a public involvement meeting to discuss proposed improvements to the WIS 167 (Mequon Road) and Country Aire Drive intersection in Washington County.

The meeting will take place at the Germantown Public Library - Community Room, N112W16957 Mequon Road, Germantown on Thursday, October 22, from 5 to 7 p.m. The objective of this meeting is to familiarize the public with the purpose and need of the project and obtain input on proposed improvements.

The meeting will be conducted in an open house format. No formal presentations will be made. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions. Project plans, location maps, and other exhibits will be on display to illustrate the work in detail. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.

The project involves reconstructing the Mequon Road and Country Aire Drive intersection. Proposed improvements include:

Constructing a raised median on Mequon Road
Dedicated left and right turn lanes
Potential on street bike accommodations and off road pedestrian facilities

Additional intersection improvements include accommodation of a future second lane of travel in each direction of WIS 167, while also following the alignment and profile of a recent corridor study which identified the long range needs of the roadway to be a 4-lane divided section. By including these elements into the intersection reconstruction, future impacts to the roadway and adjacent residents would be reduced. Construction is currently scheduled for 2018.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like more information, please contact WisDOT Project Manager Nguyen Ly at (262) 548-8739. Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Nguyen Ly, WisDOT, 141 NW Barstow Street, P.O. Box 798, Waukesha, WI 53187.

Citizens who require a sign language interpreter may request one by contacting Nguyen Ly at least three working days before the meeting.
