The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is conducting a public hearing this evening as part of the environmental process for the proposed reconstruction of US 51 between Rocky Run Road and County Y located in the towns of Hazelhurst and Cassian, Oneida County.
WisDOT representatives are planning a brief presentation at 4:30 pm, followed by an opportunity for attendees to provide public testimony. Local officials, property owners, and other interested parties are encouraged to attend the hearing.
This project is currently scheduled for construction in 2016. The proposed improvements include:
- Lengthening the existing passing lanes.
- Upgrading and improving intersections, widening clear zones, and flattening side slopes.
- Replacing the existing culverts that carry Rocky Run Creek under US 51 with a concrete box culvert.
The hearing is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m., at the Northwoods Community Elementary School on County Highway K in Harshaw.
