Public meeting on highway proposal slated
DELAVAN DELAVAN — A public information meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 10 so that people can learn more about the proposed improvements planned for Wisconsin Highway 11. The meeting will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Delavan-Darien High School.
The Highway 11 project, currently scheduled to begin in fall 2017, would stretch from U.S. Highway 14 in the town of Darien to Turtle Creek Drive in Delavan. Plans include paving new asphalt and raising the roadway about 3 inches. Intersection improvements, possibly including bypass lanes or changes to existing lanes, are being considered, according to a news release from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
Displays of the project will be available for viewing and DOT representatives will be on hand to answer questions at the October meeting.
“The purpose of the public information meeting is to discuss the project with the general public and identify issues that may need further consideration during the design process,” the news release states. “Persons knowledgeable of historical or archeological information that would be relevant to the project are encouraged to attend the meeting or contact project staff.”
