Public meeting for intersection improvements on WIS 83 in Kenosha County

 

Oct. 16, 2014

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will be conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss proposed improvements to two intersections in Kenosha County.

WIS 83 and County C

Intersection reconstruction of WIS 83 and County C Intersection in the town of Salem.

 

WIS 83 and WIS 50

Sidewalk and signal improvements at WIS 83 and WIS 50 Intersection in the village of Paddock Lake.



The meeting will take place in Salem Town Hall, 9814 Antioch Road, Salem, WI 53168 on Thursday October 23rd, from 4 to 7 p.m. The meeting will be an informal, open house format.  Exhibits will be displayed but no formal presentation will be given. Representatives of WisDOT will be available to discuss the proposed project and address any questions or concerns. Although information about the improvements to the WIS 83 and WIS 50 Intersection will be provided, the focus of the meeting will be on the reconstruction of the WIS 83 and County C Intersection.

With a higher than average number of crashes per year with a significant number of them being severe crashes, the WIS 83 and County C Intersection is in the top five percent of hazardous intersections in the south east region of Wisconsin. Therefore, WisDOT is evaluating multiple alternatives to correct this situation. After gathering input at this meeting, design modifications will be explored and another public involvement meeting will be held in 2015.  A preferred alternative will not be selected until that time so we encourage your input now. Construction is anticipated in 2018.
