Public involvement meeting set to address future of US 14, Dane and Rock counties

April 10, 2014

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southwest Region will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss US 14 between WIS 92 and I-39/90 in Dane and Rock County.

The public involvement meeting is planned for Wednesday, April 30 at J.C. McKenna Middle School in Evansville, 307 S. 1st Street, from 4 to 7 p.m. The meeting will be held in an open house format with a brief presentation at 5:30 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to present findings of the US 14 corridor study, which evaluated the existing roadway and possible improvements to improve safety and mobility. Data was collected regarding traffic volumes and crashes, natural resources, archaeological and historic resources, access points and existing and future land use plans.

The study will be incorporated into the preparation of a corridor management plan to preserve US 14 as a two-lane highway for as long as possible. Improvement alternatives and recommendations have been developed. No construction projects are planned at this time.

The public is encouraged to attend the public involvement meeting to learn more about the study and provide input. Project maps and other information will be on display and WisDOT staff will be available to explain the study and answer questions.

The meeting facility is wheelchair accessible. People who are deaf or hard of hearing and require an interpreter may call the project manager—to allow time for making arrangements, please call no later than three working days prior to the meeting.

For additional information about the study, interested persons may contact the WisDOT Project Manager Mark Westerveld, (608) 243-5355, mark.westerveld@dot.wi.gov.
