Public meetings scheduled for US 41 Interstate conversion study
May 8, 2012
Meetings to be held in Brown, Outagamie, Winnebago, Fond du lac, Washington and Milwaukee counties
(Milwaukee / Green Bay) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region has scheduled a series of public information meetings to discuss the conversion of US 41 from Milwaukee to Green Bay to an Interstate highway. People who travel, live or do business along the US 41 corridor are encouraged to attend to learn more about the planning study.
According to WisDOT Secretary Mark Gottlieb, "Converting US 41 to an Interstate will encourage economic growth, increase safety and create an identity for the corridor from Milwaukee to Green Bay."
The public is encouraged to provide comments and suggestions. Project staff will also be available to answer questions.

Each will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m., with a brief presentation at 5:15 p.m., followed by an open house format where WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.
