March 25, 2013
Road construction begins later this year
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is announcing a public information meeting to discuss the construction of County VV and County U intersection improvements and County FF interchange along WIS 29, Brown County. The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Hillcrest Elementary School, 4193 Hillcrest Drive, Hobart, WI 54155. A short presentation will be made at 5:10 p.m.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, ask questions and offer comments. The meeting will be held in an open house format and project staff will be available to discuss the projects on an individual basis.
Construction work scheduled for 2013 and 2014 includes:
- County VV and County U — Beginning in May, intersection improvements will be made to enhance safety. At the County VV intersection, a “J-Turn intersection” will be installed. At the County U intersection, left hand turns onto WIS 29 and cross movements will be restricted. Construction is expected to be complete by July 2013.
- WIS 29 and County FF Interchange —Beginning in July 2013, a diamond interchange will be constructed at County FF/Sherwood Street, with a bridge carrying the local road traffic over WIS 29. The interchange is expected to open in July 2014 with construction completed in fall 2014.
- In addition, County FF/Sherwood Street will be reconstructed between Shawano Avenue and Navajo Trail with roundabouts at some intersections. A new frontage road connecting Sunlite Drive to Golden Pond Park Court will be constructed providing improved east-west access in the village of Hobart.
Future improvements along the corridor will be discussed. These include a new diamond interchange at County VV, an overpass at County U, and an overpass at North Pine Tree Road. These improvements are not currently scheduled for construction.
