Public information meeting scheduled for US 63 in Washburn County
November 5, 2012
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will hold a public information meeting on Wednesday, November 14, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Shell Lake City Hall Council Chambers located at 501 1st Street, Shell Lake, to discuss improvements to approximately five miles of US 63 between Woodyard Road and County B (east).
This meeting will follow an informal open house format and the public will be able to review and comment on the proposed project improvements. Those improvements include: US 63 pavement improvements, two-way-left-turn lane and pedestrian refuge island configuration within Shell Lake, a southbound passing lane, a pedestrian and bicycle path east of US 63 between County D and County B (east) that will go through Memorial Park and proposed side road connections. This meeting will NOT include the US 63 project that begins at the south county line and travels northward to Woodyard Road.
An environmental report will be prepared as part of the project to identify potential impacts of the project. Persons with an interest in, or knowledge about, historical and archaeological resources in the project area are invited to present such information at the meeting.
Representatives from WisDOT will be on hand to answer questions and discuss project specifics.
