The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northwest Region in Eau Claire will host a public involvement meeting to discuss the proposed project improvements for the rehabilitation of US 12 in St. Croix County. The meeting is scheduled from 5-7 p.m.Tuesday, June 19 at Gethsemane Lutheran Church, 1350 Florence St., Baldwin.

Project improvement concepts include resurfacing US 12 between US 63 and WIS 128, repairing the US 12 bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad, and reconstructing the US 12/WIS 128 intersection. Construction is currently scheduled for 2020. The resurfacing portion between US 63 and WIS 128 will be constructed while open to traffic. The US 12/WIS 128 intersection will be constructed while the intersection is closed to US 12 and WIS 128 traffic. A signed detour will be in place while the intersection is closed. Construction is currently scheduled for 2020.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions concerning this project. Maps showing the proposed improvement alternatives will be on display. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.
