Public meeting for Highway 35 improvement project set

Body: 

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss the roadway improvement project on State Highway 35 in the City of Hudson and the Village of North Hudson.

The meeting is scheduled for 5-9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10, 2018 at the Hudson City Hall Council Chambers, 505 Third St., Hudson. Due to the large number of property owners along this corridor and the limited size of the Council Chambers, there will be two separate meetings. The meetings will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m. If you are a property owner or interested in the southerly two projects (from Front Street to the Lake Mallalieu Bridge), please plan on attending the first meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. If you are a property owner or interested in the northerly project (from Lake Mallalieu Bridge to Sommers Street), please plan on attending the second meeting from 7 to 9 p.m.

The objective of this meeting is to familiarize the public with the purpose and need for the project and to obtain input on the proposed improvements. Meetings will follow an open house format with maps and exhibits of the project area on display. WisDOT staff will be available to answer questions. A brief presentation will begin at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.

This project involves the following:

• Pavement rehabilitation including joint repair, grinding, and asphaltic overlay.

• Roadway reconstruction including curb and gutter, storm sewer, water, sanitary sewer, and new pavement structure.

• Traffic signal and lighting improvements at select locations

• Curb ramp improvements.

• Polymer overall on bridge deck.

Construction is currently scheduled to occur in the summer of 2021.

All interested residents, property and business owners are encouraged to attend the meeting.

Citizens who are hearing-impaired and require an interpreter may request one by contacting Diana Maas at least three working days prior to the meeting via the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay system (dialing 711).
