The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will hold a public information meeting to discuss the upcoming reconstruction of Highway 11 from 92nd Street in Sturtevant to Highway 31 in Mount Pleasant.
The meeting will be an informal open house Thursday, Nov. 29, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the community room of Mount Pleasant Village Hall
The project team will be available to answer questions and address concerns relating to the project, which is scheduled for 2017 and 2018. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions concerning this project.
Originally built in 1973, Highway 11 pavement is in poor condition and the asphalt overlay has exceeded its useful life, according to the DOT.
WisDOT is designing a project to reconstruct the roadway as a four-lane divided highway. The structure over the Pike River will be replaced to accommodate the widening of the roadway.
Additionally, the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge over the highway will be replaced, to accommodate widening and to increase the clearance under the bridge. Signalized and roundabout intersection alternatives are being evaluated at 90th Street, Willow Road/84th Street, Oakes Road and Continental Drive intersections.
People unable to attend the meeting may contact Gary Metzer at (262) 548-5685 for more information. Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Gary Metzer, P.E. WisDOT Project Manager at 141 NW Barstow, Waukesha, WI 53187-0798 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing and require an interpreter may request one by contacting the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System (dial 711).
