City government leaders in Lancaster
wanted the Wisconsin Department of
Transportation to answer three, key
questions last week. D O T officials
met with the city about the proposed
reconstruction of Highway-61 in Lancaster
coming up in 2017.
Will the traffic pattern be changed on
the courthouse square downtown, will
a roundabout be built at the intersection
of Highway-61 and Elm Street near the
library, and how much local input will
the D O T listen to concerning the project ?
Lancaster Mayor Jerry Wehrle says the
D O T is open to thoughts and ideas about
the project. Wehrle also says the city
learned the schedule for the project could
still be changed.
According to Wehrle, it’ll be interesting
to see if any schedules are changed for
road projects across the state, keeping
in mind the impact of this past Winter.
The D O T will hold a meeting next month
with the general public, to talk about the
proposed Highway-61 work. It’ll be held
on April 10th at the Lancaster City Hall.
