Meeting scheduled for US 10 passing lanes in Manitowoc County

July 14, 2014

Project planned to be built in 2019

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is announcing a public involvement meeting has been scheduled for the proposed pavement and passing lane improvements along 7.5 miles of US 10 from Pleasant View Road just east of the village of Reedsville to Branch River Road in the town of Manitowoc Rapids in Manitowoc County. It will take place Wednesday, July 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the village of Whitelaw municipal building, 147 W Menasha Avenue, Whitelaw. A short presentation is planned for 5:15 p.m. Construction is scheduled for 2019 but could be advanced to 2018.

Other proposed improvements include:

  • Construction of approximately 2 miles of eastbound and 2 miles of westbound passing lanes between Reedsville and Whitelaw to provide safer passing opportunities
  • Culvert repair and replacement at spot locations to address deteriorated culverts
  • Installation of new signing and pavement marking

New right-of-way and temporary easements will be required to construct the passing lanes and culvert upgrades.

During construction, motorists can expect to encounter periodic single lane closures on US 10. US 10 may be detoured for short time during culvert replacements. Local and emergency access will be maintained during construction.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide comments concerning this project. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project and answer questions on an individual basis. Maps showing the proposed improvement alternatives will also be on display.

Persons who cannot attend the meeting and/or would like to contribute comments to the project should contact Brian Haen at (920) 492-4103 or via email at

Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing and require an interpreter may request one by contacting Brian Haen at least three working days prior to the meeting.
