Public meeting for WIS 22 project, Columbia County

October 18, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southwest Region will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss a scheduled pavement replacement project on Highway 22 in Columbia County. The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26, at the Columbia County Highway Department, 338 Old Highway 16 West, Wyocena, Wisconsin.

The 11-mile corridor is located between WIS 60 in the town of Leeds and WIS 16 in the town of Wyocena. In addition to replacing the pavement, improvements include upgrading select intersections, protecting or regrading steep slopes, and rehabilitation and extension of select culvert pipes. Right-of-way acquisition will be required. The project is currently scheduled to begin construction in 2019, but may be advanced to 2018.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting to provide input and ask questions concerning this project. Exhibits showing the proposed improvements will be on display. A brief presentation will be made at 5:30 p.m. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the proposed project and address questions or concerns on an individual basis.
