(Sheboygan County) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region office is announcing a public involvement meeting for a Freeway Designation and Corridor Preservation Study on WIS 23 in Sheboygan County. The study limits are between County P west of the city of Plymouth and WIS 32 in the city of Sheboygan Falls.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Riverview Middle School cafeteria, 300 Riverview Circle, Plymouth. There will be a brief presentation at 5:15 p.m. The reminder of the meeting will follow an open-house format.

The WIS 23 study was initiated in 2007. Its purpose is to develop a long-range plan for WIS 23 to preserve safety, mobility and access into the future.
