(WFRV) – An online public involvement meeting has been scheduled to discuss options for the proposed I-41 expansion project between WIS 96 in Appleton and Scheuring Road in De Pere.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 13, starting at 5 p.m. on YouTube. The meeting will include a live presentation followed by a Q&A. To join the Wednesday meeting, click here.
The meeting is meant to introduce the proposed project and gather public input to aid in developing the purpose and need, a range of transportation solutions, and a proposed project schedule.
WisDOT says individuals will be able to share their questions and comments during the meeting via YouTube Live or by submitting questions via email to DOTDTSDNERI41@dot.wi.gov to be answered by WisDOT staff after the presentation.
The Joint Finance Committee approved funding for a lane expansion of I-41 in June 2019. The funding also includes the construction of a southern bridge in De Pere. In October, WisDOT told WFRV Local 5 that it would build a new interchange on I-41 to push the Southern Bridge Project forward.
