Public meeting scheduled for 14th Street bridge work in Sheboygan
March 18, 2014
Design concepts will be reviewed
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is announcing a public involvement meeting to discuss preliminary design concepts for the bridge rehabilitation of the 14th Street (WIS 28) bridge over the Sheboygan River. WisDOT, in partnership with the city of Sheboygan, is hosting the meeting on Thursday, March 27 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Kiwanis Fieldhouse located at 726 Kiwanis Park Drive, Sheboygan. A short presentation is scheduled for 4:40 p.m.
The proposed improvement project on 14th Street would begin just north of Niagara Avenue and extend north to Ontario Avenue. The purpose of the meeting is to involve the public in the preliminary design, and discuss anticipated traffic control and the project schedule. Design concepts to be discussed include the lane configuration or "look" of the bridge and roadway approaches with bike accommodations, sidewalk, and street lighting. Additionally, bridge improvements and impacts to vehicular and bike/pedestrian traffic during construction will also be reviewed. The project is anticipated to be constructed in the summer of 2015.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions concerning this project. Maps and displays showing the proposed improvement will be on display. WisDOT and city of Sheboygan representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.
