State Highway 23 Meeting In FDL

City and County officials in Fond du Lac will be sponsoring a meeting with area legislators Friday morning about the 4-lane expansion project for Highway 23 and the State Transportation funding. The meeting is from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the UW-Fond du Lac Large Group Instruction Room 113 and 114. State Senator Dan Feyen says he is well aware of the concerns over safety and the need to expand the highway between Fond du Lac and Plymouth. He says it is the topic of conversation that draws the most attention. He says he and State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt are hoping to get funding included in the state budget for the project, if a court appeal is successful in restoring the project. He says he would like to see orange barrels up for the project next year or the year after. Meanwhile he urges residents to send a letter to the 7th District Court of Appeals where the legal case that halted funding for the project is currently being reviewed. Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue photo.
