Public Meeting Scheduled to Discuss Section of WIS 35 in Somerset

Wisconsin Department of Transportation officials will hold a public information meeting to discuss the proposed controlled access project on WIS 35 in the Town of Somerset in St. Croix County.

The project would designate the segment of WIS 35 between 200th Avenue in Somerset and the north county line as a “Controlled Access Highway.” This would give the Department of Transportation the authority to exercise special controls over traffic on the highway. The Department would also have authority to execute any construction projects on the highway they deem necessary to ensure public safety.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2011, from 5-7 p.m. at the Somerset Town Hall, 748 Highway 35, Somerset.
