The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will host a public involvement meeting to discuss Wisconsin River bridge project along WIS 130 between WIS 133 and Lone Rock in Richland, Sauk and Iowa County. 

The meeting is scheduled for Friday, May 31 from 5-7 p.m. at the Lone Rock Community Hall, 214 N. Broadway Street. The meeting will follow an open house format. A brief presentation will be made at 6 p.m.
