Stakeholder committees have been formed to provide feedback as the study moves forward.​​

Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC)

The CAC gives the WisDOT team an avenue to share study information and obtain feedback from businesses along the corridor. This committee will provide a setting for members to provide feedback about the study’s communications approach, design needs, corridor issues, and environmental concerns and needs. The CAC includes large employers and business groups who can easily share study information to their employees and members.

Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)

Local and regional transportation professionals from public works departments, municipal planning groups and law enforcement comprise the TAC. This committee will provide technical input on study aspects including needs, alternatives development and screening, and any information specific to the jurisdictions that members represent.

Local Official Advisory Committee (LOAC)

Local and elected officials from tribes, counties, cities, villages, other municipalities, and government agencies within the corridor will make up the LOAC. This committee will provide an opportunity for local leadership input on study aspects, including the need for the study, alternatives development and environmental impacts and benefits. The committee also provides valuable information about the study that local officials can share with their constituents and stakeholders.
