The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will hold public hearings April 30 and May 1 to discuss the proposed reconstruction of Interstate 43 in Milwaukee and Ozaukee counties.
The proposal includes the 14-mile section of the interstate running from the southern border of Glendale in Milwaukee County to the northern border of Grafton in Ozaukee County, according to a news release. The project would include rebuilding the road, bridges and interchanges. It would also include redesigning the County Line Road interchange and reconstructing surface streets.
The project will require 12 homes and three businesses to be moved, according to a release, and the state would have to acquire about 30 acres of right-of-way. The project would affect 27 acres of wetland, five acres of floodplain and 10 acres of farmland.
More information about the proposed project is available at www.dot.wisconsin.gov/projects/seregion/43.
The April 30 meeting will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at Nicolet High School, 6701 N. Jean Nicolet Road, Glendale. The May 1 meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at Christ Church, 13460 N. Port Washington Road, Mequon.
