After a project is selected to be in the Six-Year Highway
Improvement Program, WisDOT continues to listen to citizens'
concerns through public information meetings.
Sometimes it is
possible for a WisDOT representative to personally visit homes,
businesses or farms prior to or during a construction project. A
visit from WisDOT personnel offers citizens the chance to gain
information, air concerns, discuss issues, or ask for assistance.
WisDOT works with citizens to identify project alternatives. Each
alternative is analyzed and assessed based on cost and its impact
Farmlands and wetlands
Historic structures and artifacts
Public meetings are held to present the recommended improvements
with more specific detail about impacts. Small changes can be
applied to the plan at this point to help address public concerns
and fine-tune the design.
