DOT seeks public input on Hwy. 27 project


A local portion of Hwy. 27 has been eyed for safety improvements, and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is seeking public input.

Construction would begin in summer 2023 on a plan to widen the shoulder from 3 feet to 6 feet, add a centerline, and add rumble strips on a 15.56-mile stretch of Hwy. 27 from Hardware Road north to the county line. The aim is to reduce the frequency and severity of vehicles crossing the center line and leaving the roadway.

The highway is expected to remain open during construction with flagging operations.

More information about the project can be found at by searching WIS 27 (Hardware Road to N. Monroe County line), or by clicking Projects and Studies, Southwest Region, Monroe County. The public is encouraged to view the information and submit feedback to the project team. Comments received through Feb. 12 will be considered for inclusion in the project’s environmental document.
