DOT Seeks Input On Proposed Upgrades For Hwy. 107 In Lincoln County
The coronavirus stopped a planned public input meeting concerning the proposed improvements to state Highway 107 in Lincoln county.
The improvements are scheduled for 2023 but the state is seeking input for the project in the towns of Bradley, Rock Falls and Merrill.
DOT Project engineer Stacy Hagenbucher outlines the project...
"On Wisconsin 107 our current project is two bridge replacements, a structure rehabilitation, and then two culvert replaces. This is all along the stretch from Merrill to Tomahawk.."
Hagenbucher says because the in-person input meeting was cancelled, they want to find out what the public thinks of the project...
"From the public we're asking...if there's any other needs out there or problems with these particular structures or culverts we are looking for their feedback on that, as well as we have a proposed detour that we will implement for both the northern and southern half of these projects..."
The DOT is seeking feedback until August 31. Residents, property and business owners within the project limits have been mailed information and feedback forms. The same materials, including maps of existing right-of-way at project locations, are posted online for review on the project website.
