The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region is providing this reminder that public involvement meeting is scheduled to discuss design concepts for a proposed reconstruction of WIS 96 from Lawe Street to Claribel Street in city of Kaukauna, Outagamie County. The meeting will be held on Monday, April 14, at Kaukauna City Hall, 201 W. Second Street, from 5 to 6:30. A short presentation will be made at 5:15.

The project includes reconstruction of the pavement, new curb and gutter, new sidewalks, bicycle accommodations, and new storm sewer. The project is anticipated to be constructed in 2020.
