WIS 29/156 public involvement meeting scheduled

October 18, 2013

Public invited to attend and learn more about proposed intersection and pavement improvements

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss the proposed project to improve the safety of the WIS 29/156 intersection and to improve the pavement on WIS 156. The project is located in the towns of Maple Grove (Shawano County) and Pittsfield (Brown County).

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 29, at the St. Stanislaus Fellowship Hall, W1888 Hofa Park Drive, Seymour, WI from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The objective of the meeting is to present information regarding the purpose and need for the proposed improvements, answer questions and obtain input from the public. A brief presentation will be given at 7 p.m. After the presentation, the meeting will follow an open house format. Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing and who require an interpreter may request one by contacting Kristin McHugh at (715) 421-8380 at least three working days prior to the meeting.

The proposed project will evaluate improvements to the WIS 29/156 intersection to address safety. Different types of intersection improvements will be evaluated at WIS 29/156, including an overpass and a J-turn intersection.

WisDOT is also proposing to mill and overlay the WIS 156 pavement between WIS 55 and WIS 29. Other proposed improvements on WIS 156 include:

  • Paving the shoulders along the roadway
  • Construction of a new box culvert at the unnamed tributary of the Black Creek
  • Replacement or removal of deteriorated guard rail
  • Installation of new signing and pavement marking

New right of way and temporary easements will be required at spot locations to accommodate improvements.

Construction is currently scheduled for 2016. During construction, motorists can expect to encounter periodic single lane closures on WIS 29. WIS 156 will be detoured during construction of the box culvert. Access to adjacent properties will be maintained during construction.
