CITY OF HUDSON: 1/8/18 Open House Meeting - Carmichael Rd.

Wednesday, January 3, 2018 - 11:21pm

City of Hudson, Wisconsin
Carmichael Road Corridor Study
Second Public Meeting

The City of Hudson and SEH Inc. are undertaking a study of the Carmichael Road Corridor. The studied Corridor is approximately four miles long and generally defined as the area between the north city limits and the south side of River Crest Elementary School.
The first open house, held in September 2017, provided an opportunity for the public to express concerns and provide comments on the corridor. Since then, traffic volume data has been collected to develop a 2017 traffic volume base. Traffic forecasts from the Carmichael Ridge Development and the St. Croix Meadows Development, along with estimates of traffic from other potential development, have been used to develop corridor traffic volume forecasts.
These forecasted volumes will be used to determine the operation of the corridor in 2025 and 2040. An alternate 2040 forecast will utilize the Wisconsin DOT/City of Hudson preferred alternate for the I-94 interchange. Adjustments to intersections will be made as needed to achieve acceptable levels of service. A general preferred concept will be presented for discussion.
The second part of the study is focused on the timing and coordination of the traffic signals in the corridor to achieve better coordinated traffic flow in the corridor.
A second open house is scheduled for Monday, January 8, 2018 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at Hudson City Hall, 505 Third Street, in the Council Chambers. Presentation of the data and results will be made at both 4:30 and 5:15 PM. Due to the technical nature of the results, attendance at one of the two presentation sessions is recommended. City and SEH staff will be available to answer questions and receive comments.
Questions can be directed to Emily Sorenson, Community Development Clerk, at 715/386-4776 or
