Department of Transportation (DOT): Public
involvement meeting scheduled for WIS 11 intersection
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southwest
Region will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss the
proposed improvements at the Highway 11 and Galena Street
intersection in Benton. The meeting is scheduled from 5:00 to
7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 21 at the Benton VFW, 82 E. Main
Street. A presentation will be made at 5:30 p.m.
The proposed intersection improvements would result in the
removal of trees along the right-of-way on the north side of
Highway 11 between Galena Street and County J. The veteran
memorials located in the highway median would not be impacted,
and no real estate acquisition would be required.
The project is part of DOT’s plans to improve freight mobility
and safety at three locations in the area. In addition to
Benton, improvements are planned at WIS 11 and WIS 80 in Grant
County, and WIS 11 and Court Street in Rock County.
WisDOT staff will be available at the meeting to discuss the
project. Construction is scheduled for 2015.
If you are unable to attend the meeting or would like more
information, please contact project manager Suzan Nast at (608)

. Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Suzan
