Meeting to focus on proposed roadway and Cherry Creek Bridge improvements

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will hold a public involvement meeting to provide information and review alternatives for proposed improvements of WIS 78 from County D to the south village limits of Argyle in Lafayette County. The meeting is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on March 11 at the Wiota Town Hall, 9830 Park Street, Wiota.

The proposed improvement project will include the replacement of the WIS 78 bridge over Cherry Creek east of Wiota, near the intersection of Stuart Road.
