I-41 Project - Public Involvement

​WisDOT public involvement plans and activities are designed to effectively involve the public early and often in the process ​so that the project decisions made are in the best overall interest. Good public involvement is integral to good transportation planning and decision-making. The public includes individuals or organizations, groups, municipalities and businesses.

Below, you will find a listing of all WisDOT public outreach for this project and any materials, displays, exhibits, and handouts presented at those meetings.
