WIS 165 public involvement meeting in Village of Pleasant Prairie

 

May 21, 2014

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Region is conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss improvements for WIS 165 (104th Street) in the Village of Pleasant Prairie.

The resurfacing on WIS 165 will extend from Interstate 94 to WIS 31, a distance of about 3.1 miles. Located within the resurfacing project is a two to four lane expansion project between Corporate Drive and Terwall Terrace. Construction activities on both projects are anticipated to start in 2016

The meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., in the Donald H. Wruck (Beach) Pavilion, 9900 Park Drive (west side of Lake Andrea). The meeting will be held in an open house format. Displays showing the preferred alternative for the corridor will be available for viewing. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the study on an individual basis.

The purpose of the resurfacing project is to improve the condition and extend the life of the existing WIS 165 pavement. The project includes diamond grinding of the existing concrete pavement, shoulder replacement, overlay on the bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad and upgrading the beam guard along the corridor.

The purpose of the expansion project is to accommodate additional capacity and to provide for better continuity on WIS 165 within the project limits. The project includes pavement resurfacing, bridge construction at the Des Plaines River, shoulder replacement, the addition of two travel lanes to the north of the existing roadway and the construction of a multi-use path on the north side of WIS 165.
