Public Involvement Meeting for US 53 / County Highway L intersection safety improvement project in Douglas County

Meeting will provide project information and encourage community feedback.

 

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northwest Region will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss improvements to the intersection of US Highway 53 and County Highway L in Douglas County. The meeting is scheduled from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at the Bennett Town Hall located at 9215 E County Road L, Bennett, WI  54873.

 

The meeting will be an informal open house with a short presentation at 5:45 p.m. Exhibits showing the plan concepts will be on display. Project representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.

This project includes:

  • eliminating the existing US 53 median crossover while creating new crossovers/U-turns north and south of County Highway L
  • resurfacing the pavement of US 53
  • replacing signs and pavement marking

 

This project is expected to take place during the 2018 construction season. Traffic on US 53 will be restricted to one lane in each direction and County L will utilize flaggers to direct traffic during construction.

 

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions concerning the project. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.

 

If you are unable to attend the meeting, or would like more information, contact Brendan Dirkes, Project Manager, at (715) 395-3026. Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Brendan Dirkes at 1701 North 4th Street Superior, WI 54880.

 

Citizens who are hearing-impaired and require an interpreter may request one by contacting Diana Maas at least three working days prior to the meeting via the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System (dial 711).
