Public meeting scheduled for WIS 64 in St. Croix County

October 29, 2013

Meeting to focus on preservation needs of WIS 64

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northwest Region in Eau Claire is announcing a public information meeting to discuss the WIS 64 Freeway Conversion Study. The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 6 at the Somerset High School multipurpose room. A brief presentation is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.

The study examines the existing environmental, social, and transportation-related issues along WIS 64 between 150th Street to WIS 65. This study, which is independent of the Stillwater Bridge project, is a planning and preservation project that will protect the safety and mobility of the travelling public by identifying the necessary future improvements and right-of-way needs to designate and physically convert the facility to a Freeway and Expressway. An official map and documentation declaring the facility as either a freeway or expressway will be the end products of this effort.

The purpose of this meeting is to present concepts and obtain input from the public who live, work and travel the WIS 64 corridor on a daily basis. The presentation and displays will cover the four detailed alternatives, including the department’s preferred alternative that will be carried forward through the environmental documentation process. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the study on an individual basis.

If you are unable to attend the meeting or would like more information, contact Jeff Abboud at (715) 855-7661. Written comments regarding the study can be mailed to Jeff Abboud, WisDOT, 718 W. Clairemont Avenue, Eau Claire, WI 54701, or emailed at jeffry.abboud@dot.wi.gov.
