LINCOLN COUNTY – Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) North Central Region is seeking feedback until Aug. 31, 2020 on the proposed improvements to WIS 107 in alternative formats.
A public involvement meeting was previously planned to discuss proposed improvements to WIS 107, between Merrill and Tomahawk, in the towns of Merrill, Rock Falls and Bradley. An in-person meeting is no longer planned based on public health guidance to limit public gatherings.
Residents, property and business owners within the project limits have been mailed informative materials, including comment forms that can be mailed back. The same materials, including maps of existing right-of-way at project locations, are posted online for review on the project website (public involvement tab) at www.wisconsindot.gov/Pages/projects/by-region/nc/wis107lincoln/public.aspx.
Feedback can also be submitted via online survey at https://2.selectsurvey.net/wisdot/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=82LH3l3K#.
Construction is currently scheduled for 2023. Proposed improvements include:
- Bridge rehabilitation at WIS 107 over Joe Snow Creek
- Bridge replacement at WIS 107 over Little Pine Creek
- Bridge replacement at WIS 107 over Skanawan Creek
- Culvert replacements at .3 and 2.3 miles south of County J
During construction, WIS 107 will be closed and detoured for through traffic. Access to adjacent properties will be maintained. During construction, motorists would use a proposed detour of WIS 86, US 51 and WIS 64.
Adjacent property and business owners are encouraged to provide feedback. Deaf or hard of hearing persons needing assistance should contact the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay system (dial 711). For any questions or issues with the above feedback options, contact WisDOT Project Manager Stacy Hagenbucher at 715-365-5770 or Stacy.Hagenbucher@dot.wi.gov.
