Public meeting for Highway 19 (Madison Street), Waterloo

May 15, 2014

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southwest Region will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss preliminary design concepts for Highway 19 from Palmer Street to the bridge east of Highway 89 (N. Monroe Street) in the city of Waterloo. The meeting is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 22 at the Waterloo Municipal Building, 136 N. Monroe Street.

The proposed improvement project on Highway 19 plans to resurface 0.08 miles of roadway from Palmer Street to the bridge between Palmer Street and Canal Road, and to reconstruct 0.75 miles of Highway 19 from the bridge between Palmer Street and Canal Road to the bridge just east of WIS 89 (N. Monroe Street). The purpose of this meeting is to inform the public of the status of preliminary design, share the project schedule and discuss with local residents and stakeholders. Design concepts to be discussed include raising the roadway profile of Highway 19 from Minnetonka Way to S. Jackson Street and modifying the intersection of Madison Street and N. Monroe Street to accommodate large truck turning movements.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions concerning this project. Maps showing the proposed improvement alternatives will be on display. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.
