(De Pere) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) northeast region is announcing a public involvement meeting to share the remaining design alternatives for the WIS 32 (Main St.) corridor through the city of De Pere from Third Street to Eighth Street. The segment is currently scheduled for reconstruction in 2022. WisDOT, in partnership with the city of De Pere, is leading this one-mile long study to help determine need and scope of future construction projects.

WIS 32 Corridor Planning Study, Public Involvement Meeting

  • When: Thursday, May 26, 2016, 5 to 7 p.m. A short presentation begins at 5:15 p.m., followed by an open house format.
  • Where: De Pere Community Center, Pine Room, 600 Grant Street, De Pere

This multi-year study will determine what this corridor will look like in the future, and how the corridor will best serve the citizens of De Pere, Brown County, and northeast Wisconsin. There will be displays, maps, and exhibits to view on the remaining corridor alternatives and the CN Railroad Bridge analysis. WisDOT and De Pere engineers and staff will be available to discuss the study. The public is encouraged to attend, ask questions and provide comments.
