WIS 31 public involvement meeting scheduled in Racine County

 

May 21, 2014

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Region is conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss improvements for WIS 31 in Racine County.

 

The improvements on WIS 31 will extend from Washington Avenue (WIS 20) to County MM in the village of Mount Pleasant, a distance of about 1.8 miles.

 

The meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 28, from 5 7 p.m., in the Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive, Mount Pleasant Wisconsin, 53406. The meeting will follow an open house format with brief identical presentations at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.

 

The purpose of the project is to improve the driving conditions, reduce crash frequency and user‑delay, and complete the sidewalk network of this section of WIS 31. WisDOT is prepared to achieve these goals by resurfacing the highway along with improving the intersections using current safety design standards. Additional right-of-way may be required to increase safety and improve traffic operations at the signalized intersections as well as to accommodate sidewalks. Construction activities are anticipated to start in 2019.

 

All citizens with concerns that wish to assist in the development of this project are encouraged to attend and/or contact project personnel.  Persons with an interest or knowledge about historical and archaeological resources in the project area are invited to share such information with the project team. 

 

Citizens who are unable to attend the meeting, or would like more information, can contact Julie Jenks at (262) 548-6462. Written comments regarding the study can be mailed to Julie Jenks, WisDOT, 141 NW Barstow Street, P.O. Box 798, Waukesha, WI 53187.
