Public Information Meeting
The Kenosha County Department of Public Works will be holding a Public Information Meeting on February 12, 2014 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at LakeView Technology Academy (9449 88th Avenue) to discuss the proposed addition of bicycle accommodations along County Highway H (88th Avenue) from the Illinois state line to State Highway 50.

The purpose of the meeting is to present the proposed improvement concepts and accept public comments on the proposed project. The meeting will be held in an open house format. Kenosha County engineering staff, as well as engineering staff from the consulting firm Ayres Associates, will be available to answer questions.

Kenosha County, with their consultant Ayres Associates, is planning to add bicycle accommodations along CTH H (88th Avenue) from the Illinois state line to STH 50. The project is 5 miles in length. The current roadway does not have shoulders wide enough to safely accommodate bicycles. The project involves widening the shoulders to provide at least 5 feet of bicycle lane in accordance with Wisconsin Bicycle Facility Design Handbook standards.

Widening the shoulders will typically require the ditches to be regraded and shifted away from the roadway. Culverts may need to be extended or replaced, and intersection/driveway curb and gutter may need to be pushed out to allow room for bicycles. Construction is scheduled for 2016.

The meeting facility is wheelchair accessible. Hearing impaired persons needing assistance may call the Wisconsin Telecommunication Relay System (dial 711). To allow time for arranging assistance, please call no later than three working days prior to the meeting.

For additional information about the proposed improvements, interested persons may contact the consultant project manager Bob Steuck, PE at 262-523-4488; Ayres Associates, N17 W24222 Riverwood Drive, Suite 310, Waukesha, WI 53188; or by email at SteuckR@AyresAssociates.com.
