Public meeting scheduled to discuss US 10 corridor preservation mapping status

August 18, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is conducting a public meeting to discuss the status of the US 10 (I-39 to Lake Drive) corridor mapping project.

The meeting is scheduled to take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 30 at the Ben Franklin Junior High School Cafeteria, 2000 Polk Street, Stevens Point. A brief presentation is scheduled to begin at 5:15 p.m. After the presentation, the meeting will follow an open house format.

Based on current information, WisDOT no longer believes it is necessary to preserve right of way for a future, new alignment of US 10. The department's new preferred alternative is to focus on monitoring the safety and operations of the existing US 10 alignment; making improvements when necessary.

The purpose of the August 30 meeting is to discuss the department's new preferred alternative, present information, obtain public feedback, and discuss next steps.

More information about the US 10 corridor preservation study is available on the project website: http://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/projects/by-region/nc/us10portage/default.aspx.
