Meeting to focus on preliminary designs

 

August 13, 2013


The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Regional Office in Waukesha is announcing a public information meeting to discuss preliminary design concepts for the resurfacing of Pilgrim Road (WIS 145) from Mequon Road to Fond Du Lac Avenue in the Village of Germantown. The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 22, 2013, at the Village of Germantown Community Library, Community Room, N112 W16957 Mequon Road, Germantown, WI 53022.
 
The project includes resurfacing Pilgrim Road (WIS 145) from south of Mequon Road (WIS 167) to Fond du Lac Avenue, spot curb and gutter replacement, and pavement and signal replacement at the intersection of Pilgrim Road and Mequon Road. Mequon Road and Montgomery Drive/Fond Du Lac Avenue is proposed for geometric improvement. Improvement is anticipated to include the addition of turn lanes along Mequon Road and Fond du Lac Avenue. New sidewalks are proposed along the east side of Pilgrim Road, from Mequon Road to Sylvan Circle and the south side of Mequon Road from Pilgrim Road to Fond Du Lac Avenue. Decorative lighting is proposed along Pilgrim Road. Minor strip right-of-way acquisition is anticipated at spot locations for adding sidewalk and curb ramp improvement. The final design phase is scheduled to begin in the winter of 2013, with construction currently scheduled for later than 2019.
 
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input, and ask questions concerning this project. Maps showing the proposed improvement will be on display. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.
