Public meeting scheduled for I-94 Corridor expansion study in St. Croix County
January 7, 2013
Meeting to focus on expansion of I-94 from US 12 to WIS 65
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northwest Region in Eau Claire is announcing a public information meeting to discuss the expansion study for I-94 between Hudson and Baldwin. The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on January 22 at the Community Park Building, 312 North Park Street, Roberts. A short presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m.
The study area along I-94 extends approximately seven miles from the US 12 interchange to approximately 2 miles east of WIS 65. This major project has been approved for study by the Transportation Projects Commission (TPC) and proposed improvements include reconstruction of the deteriorated pavement while expanding I-94 with three travel lanes in each direction to improve freeway operations. The deteriorated bridges over Kinney Road, 100th Street, and 130th Street will be reconstructed. New right-of-way will be required to accommodate the improvements. Enumeration for construction will be evaluated by the TPC after completion of the environmental study. Construction could occur as early as 2018.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input, and ask questions concerning this study. Maps of the improvements being considered will be on display and attendees will be given the opportunity to provide written or verbal comments on the proposal. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.

Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Jim Koenig, WisDOT Northwest Region, 718 W. Clairemont Avenue, Eau Claire, WI 54701-5108. The meeting site is accessible to wheelchair.
