Meeting On Hwy 23 Expansion Tonight In FDL

The DOT will hold a meeting in Fond du Lac tonight to discuss a study about expanding State Highway 23 between Fond du Lac and Plymouth.  The meeting will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on the UW – Fond du Lac campus in the Large Group Instruction Room. A brief presentation will take place at 5:30 p.m., with the remainder of the meeting following an open-house format. Mark Kantola of the DOT says during the meeting discussion will be about recent efforts the DOT and the Federal Highway Administration have made to prepare a limited scope supplemental environmental impact study  for the Highway to address concerns a federal court had about a previous study. Input from the meeting will be incorporated into the new study. Kantola says a public hearing will be scheduled on the updated study sometime early next year.
