The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will hold a public information meeting Thursday about Highway 11 reconstruction projects in Racine County.
One project targets Highway 11 between Highway 31 and Kentucky Street, according to a WisDOT news release. WisDOT will replace deteriorated pavement, curbs and gutters and add sidewalks and bike lanes. The project, scheduled to begin in spring 2017, will also include the creation of a median, storm sewer improvements and upgrades to intersections at Highway 31, Wood Road, Southwood Drive and County Y.
The second project targets Highway 11 between Highway 31 and 92nd Street. The project, also scheduled to begin in 2017, will replace pavement, redesign the roadway as a four-lane divided highway and increase clearance for traffic under the Union Pacific Railroad bridge.
WisDOT is exploring the possibility of installing signals or roundabouts at intersections with 90th Street, Willow Road, Oakes Road and Continental Drive.
The meeting will be held as an open house with WisDOT staff available to answer individual questions. It will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. in Community Room 1 at Mount Pleasant Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive, Mount Pleasant.
Written comments can be sent to Gary Metzer at 141 NW Barstow, Waukesha, WI 53187.
