What's News in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin

Public Information Meeting
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is hosting a public information meeting on Thursday, February 20, 2014 from 4:00 until 7:00 p.m. to discuss conceptual plans for the expansion of WIS 165 (104th Street) in the Village of Pleasant Prairie. The meeting will be held at the Donald H. Wruck Pavilion located on the west side of Lake Andrea.

It will be an open house format and no formal presentation will be made. Displays showing the design alternatives being investigated for the corridor will be available for viewing. Project staff will be available to answer questions and receive comments.

PROJECT OVERVIEW
The project aims to create a continuous 4-lane divided highway along WIS 165. The primary improvements include:
Constructing 2-lanes to the north of the existing roadway. The existing lanes will become 2-lanes eastbound
Constructing a new 2-span bridge to the north of the existing structure to accommodate the expansion.
Diamond grinding the existing concrete pavement.
Replace the existing shoulders.
Construction is currently scheduled to begin in 2016.

MEETING PURPOSE
The purpose of this meeting is to gather opinions, insights, and information from the local community. Preliminary plans have been developed and your input is needed on important issues such as:
Safety
Access
Drainage
Pedestrian and bicycle accommodations
Intersection operations

Persons with a concern for or knowledge about historic buildings, structures, or archaeological sites are encouraged to attend this meeting or provide comments to WisDOT.

PROPERTY ACQUISITION
The initial roadway was constructed in 1988 and was designed to accommodate a future 4-lane section on WIS 165. As a result, very little right-of-way acquisition is anticipated for this project. Relocation of residences or businesses is not expected with this project.
