The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is seeking public input on improvements along WIS 106, east of Fort Atkinson in Jefferson County.
A virtual public presentation detailing the project is available for viewing at www.wisconsindot.gov. Simply search “Southwest Region Highway Projects and Studies”, select the link, scroll down to Design Projects – Jefferson County – WIS 106 (Edgewater Rd to County CI). The public, especially adjacent property owners, are encouraged to view the virtual meeting website and provide input. Comments are requested by August 21, 2020.
The project, currently scheduled for construction in 2026 but advanceable to 2022, includes resurfacing nearly 10 miles of WIS 106 in the towns of Koshkonong, Hebron, and Sullivan. The project will also widen the paved portion of the existing shoulder from three-foot to five-foot, centerline and shoulder rumble strips, and pavement markings. WIS 106 is anticipated to remain open to through traffic during construction with flagging operations. Access will be maintained to local residences and businesses during construction.
If you would like more information, please contact WisDOT Project Manager Matthew Lamb at (608) 246-5638 or by email at [email protected]. Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Matthew Lamb at the WisDOT Southwest Region Office, 2101 Wright Street, Madison, WI 53704.
