The proposed Highway-61 reconstruction

project in Lancaster is still open for

discussion as to what changes will be

made to the highway in the city, and

to the courthouse square.

At least one Lancaster Common Council

member says he left Thursday’s (3/27)

meeting with officials from the Wisconsin

Department of Transportation and the

project coordinator, feeling there’s still

an open mind about the project.

Alderperson At-Large Shayne LaBudda

says the council had three key questions

it wanted answered.



As to the traffic pattern on the courthouse

square, LaBudda says D O T officials

admitted that in previous communications

with the city, it may have “overstated”

more than it intended to do, the notion of

two-way traffic being implemented on

the square. The project is currently

scheduled to be done in 2017.


Local residents will get a chance to

hear about the proposed project and

give feedback to the D O T at a public

meeting next month. It’s scheduled

for April 10th at the Lancaster City Hall.
