WIS 57 public involvement meeting will solicit input on design alternatives at WIS 100 (Brown Deer Road)

 

July 21, 2014

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Region is conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss improvements for WIS 57 in Milwaukee County.

 

The proposed improvement project on WIS 57 will extend from Teutonia Avenue to Mequon Road within the village of Brown Deer and the city of Mequon, a distance of approximately 3.4 miles. The meeting will focus primarily on the intersection of WIS 57 and WIS 100.

 

The meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, July 30, from 4 6 p.m., Village of Brown Deer Community Center, 4355 W. Bradley Road, Brown Deer, WI. The meeting will follow an open house format. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.

 

The purpose of the meeting is to gather public input regarding two concepts under consideration for the junction of WIS 57 and WIS 100.  These two alternatives involve either reconstructing the existing diamond interchange with safety and operational improvements and leaving as an interchange or reconstructing this junction into a traditional intersection without the bridge or ramps.  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 Al Gilbertson at (262) 548-8817. Written comments regarding the study can be mailed to Al Gilbertson, WisDOT, 141 NW Barstow Street, P.O. Box 798, Waukesha, WI 53187.
