The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss the planned US 14 reconstruction project in Westby. The meeting is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24, in the Community Room at the Bekkum Memorial Library, 206 N. Main St., Westby. 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.

The project, scheduled for construction in 2022, will reconstruct US 14 (North Main Street) through the city of Westby.

WisDOT representatives and representatives from the engineering consulting firm of KL Engineering will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.
