WESTBY, WI (Ben Caxton) — The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss the planned US 14 reconstruction project in Westby next week. The meeting is scheduled for 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Wednesday, April 24 in the Community Room at the Bekkum Memorial Library. A brief presentation will be made at 5:30 p.m. The remainder of the meeting will be conducted as an open house. This will be the second of three planned public meetings for the project. Scheduled for construction in 2022, the work will reconstruct US 14 – North Main Street – through the city of Westby. The project begins south of Locust Street and ends just north of High Echo Lane. The approximately 1.6-mile project will replace the pavement structure and storm sewer system, and improve intersections, street lighting and pedestrian accommodations. Maps showing the proposed project will be on display. WisDOT representatives and representatives from the engineering consulting firm of KL Engineering will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.
