​​​Public comments open for proposed WisDOT Project in Brown County

Release Date: March 17, 2021

(Brown County) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region announces a design project website is now available to view proposed improvements on WIS 54 in Brown County. The public is invited to review the proposed project’s scope, schedule and traffic impacts on the new WIS 54 design website and provide comment.

WisDOT is proposing a resurface-level improvement project on 4.4 miles of WIS 54 between University Way and WIS 57. Improvements include resurfacing and concrete repair/overlay on mainline WIS 54 and ramps at Wisconsin Avenue / Nicolet Drive and Bay Settlement Road. Other improvements include replacing culvert endwalls, replacing beam guard, replacing curb ramps, adding shoulder rumble strips and pavement markings.

Design is currently underway with final plans expected summer 2022. Construction is scheduled for spring/summer 2023. No real estate will be required for this project. Proposed traffic impacts include flagging operations with short-term ramp closures. 

The website includes design displays and construction maps, a public handout and options to provide comment, including a downloadable public comment form with a pre-paid mailer. Project comments can also be submitted via email or calling project contacts on the website. No in-person public meeting will be held for this project at this time due to the current health emergency and to help stop the spread of COVID.​​
