(Oshkosh) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region is announcing a public involvement meeting to introduce a study for possible improvements on the Oregon/Jackson Street Bridge in the city of Oshkosh. The public involvement meeting is planned for Wednesday, April 27, 2016, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Oshkosh City Hall, 215 Church Avenue, room 404. A brief introduction of the project will be presented at 5:10 p.m. with an open house to follow.
 
WisDOT is in the beginning stage of the Oregon/Jackson Street Bridge study that will:
