Utility Conferences

WisDOT hosts utility conferences to provide utility companies, consultants, county and local agencies with information regarding proposed highway improvement projects. Conferences provide an excellent opportunity for WisDOT and its stakeholders to network and share information.

Conferences began a 3-year rotation in 2018. The first rotation will end this year with the Statewide Utility Conference, which is scheduled for September/October 2020​.

Continuing the same rotation in 2021, the Northeast and Southwest regions will host their conferences. In 2022, conferences will be held in the North Central, Northwest and Southeast Regions.

Typically, in January of each year, the region utility staff prepares and posts a state and local project lists and/or map for their counties. These project lists and materials and presentations from past conferences are available by navigating to the Region Conference Handbooks page.
