Public meeting scheduled for US 63 in the town of Barronett in Washburn County - Note update to meeting address
October 22, 2012
Meeting to focus on final plans and construction process
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northwest Region in Superior is announcing a public information meeting to discuss the US 63 project from Cumberland to Spooner. The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on November 7 at the Barronett Town Hall, N1608 South Heart Lake Road, in the town of Barronett in Washburn County.
The project begins at the South Washburn County line and goes 3.8 miles north and ends just south of Woodyard Road. A single passing lane is proposed for northbound traffic. The project consists of shoulder widening and slope flattening of the existing roadway and will include replacement of the existing asphalt pavement with a new asphalt pavement. The proposed project includes moving the intersection of County J and US 63 several hundred feet to the south and includes a realignment of the US 63 and South Heart Lake Road intersection. The project is currently scheduled for 2015 construction, but may be built in 2014 if funding becomes available. New right of way will be necessary in several locations along the project.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input, and ask questions concerning this project. This meeting will ONLY address this specific project. The meeting will have an open-house format, with project exhibits on display for review. WisDOT representatives will be available to address any questions or concerns.
If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like more information, contact Greg Pesola at (715) 392-7998. Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Greg Pesola, WisDOT, 1701 North 4th Street, Superior, WI 54880.
