Hearing scheduled for WIS 26 in Winnebago County

July 17, 2013

Highway proposed to be designated as a controlled access highway

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is announcing a public hearing to discuss the proposed controlled access highway designation for WIS 26 from County FF to County N (Pickett Road) in Winnebago County. The hearing is scheduled for Thursday, July 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Nekimi Town Hall, 3790 Pickett Road, Oshkosh, Wisconsin. A short presentation has been scheduled for 4:15 p.m.

The hearing will be held as an open house and the public can attend at their convenience. It will provide attendees the opportunity to present relevant oral testimony to a court reporter and/or written testimony regarding the WIS 26 designation in accordance with Wisconsin Statutes.

The controlled access designation would assist WisDOT in controlling future access along this section of WIS 26. Without controlling direct access, the safety and operating capacity of the highway will deteriorate. The designation helps regulate traffic patterns, thereby decreasing crash potential, preserving traffic-carrying capabilities, and protecting the existing public investment in the roadway.

Persons unable to attend the meeting can mail, email or fax written statements or other exhibits in place of, or in addition to, the testimony presented at the public meeting. Testimony should be addressed to Wisconsin DOT, David Nielsen, 944 Vanderperren Way, Green Bay, WI 54304; email –; fax – (920) 492-5711. All relevant material, received no later than August 15, 2013, will be included in the official transcript.

Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing and require an interpreter may request one by contacting David via email at or phone at (920) 492-0148 (or the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System at 711) at least three working days prior to the hearing. The hearing site is wheelchair accessible.
