Note - WisDOT has stopped all work on the study of a
future US 12 Bypass through the town of Koshkonong south of Fort
Atkinson. The final disposition of the study will be determined at a
future date by the Transportation Projects Commission.
(May 3, 2012)
Highway projects are developed as a cooperative effort among the
public, state and federal review agencies, and WisDOT.
Preparing a project like the
US 12 expansion from concept to actual construction takes many
years. Extensive effort is always made to keep the public
involved and informed throughout all stages of development.

Public participation is at the forefront of the EIS
process as solutions are explored. WisDOT formed the AC to review the progress
of the EIS and continue to provide local perspective. The committee
has conducted 12 meetings to date.
AC consists of:
Three city of Fort Atkinson representatives
Three town of Koshkonong representatives
One Rock County representative
Two Jefferson County representatives
Two town of Lima representatives
Two town of Milton representatives
Since the public hearing on the Draft EIS, WisDOT has held a
number of meetings with agencies and local officials, property
owners, businesses, and farmers to study the potential indirect and
cumulative effects a bypass would have on the built and natural
environment. A focus group meeting on this topic was also held with
local experts and stakeholders.
WisDOT is committed to equity and fairness and wants to ensure
no one is excluded from the US 12 project decision making process.
Identifying and addressing a disproportionately high number of
adverse effects on minority, low-income, disabled or elderly
individuals will help achieve EJ and promote
nondiscrimination in the community.
