Public meeting for Watertown Plank Road Bridges rehab
Meeting to focus on design project

 

Nov. 7, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is announcing a public involvement meeting for the rehabilitation of the Watertown Plank Road Bridges over Underwood Creek and the Canadian Pacific Railroad west of WIS 100, in the city of Wauwatosa, Milwaukee County. Project construction is scheduled to take place from summer of 2017 through fall of 2018.

WisDOT is planning to rehabilitate the Watertown Plank Road bridges over Underwood Creek. The project is located between North 113th Street and WIS 100 (Mayfair Road). In general, the project will consist of removing and replacing the existing deteriorated bridge decks. The bridge decks will be widened slightly to the north and south in order to provide for bicycle accommodations on the bridge structures. Work will also take place on Watertown Plank Road in order to make the roadway compatible with the widened bridge decks.

The meeting will be in an open house format. It will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16 at the City of Wauwatosa Public Works Building, which is located at 11100 W. Walnut Road, Wauwatosa, WI 53226. The meeting facility is wheelchair accessible.

Representatives from WisDOT and its design consultant will be present to provide information on the proposed improvements, answer questions, and take your comments. Persons with interest are encouraged to attend.
