I-43 Reconstruction Public Involvement Meetings Scheduled

I43 North/South Reconstruction Project (Silver Spring to Highway 60)

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will host two open-house style meetings regarding the Interstate Highway 43 (I43) reconstruction project. The meetings will be held to provide a project update. WisDOT representatives will be on hand to share plans and answer questions. The meetings are scheduled as follows:

  1. Tuesday, January 21, 2020 from 4-7pm at Mequon City Hall located at 11333 N Cedarburg Road in Mequon
  2. Wednesday, January 22, 2020 from 4-7pm at Nicolet High School located at 6701 N Nicolet Road in Glendale

In November of 2014, WisDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) approved the Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision (FEIS/ROD) regarding the reconstruction of I43 between Silver Spring Drive in Milwaukee County and Highway 60 in Ozaukee County. The project will:

  • Reconstruct, modernize and expand I43 to six lanes
  • Improve safety and traffic operations
  • Reconstruct five service road interchanges
  • Construct a new interchange at Highland Road
  • Replace the Union Pacific railroad bridge over I43 in Glendale
  • Expand a section of Port Washington road in Glendale from two lanes to four lanes

The state legislature authorized the construction of the project in the state budget this past July. WisDOT is preparing an environmental re-evaluation to address any changes since the FEIS/ROD was approved. This re-evaluation is expected to be completed by the middle of 2020 and final engineering and plan preparation will begin soon thereafter. Construction may start as early as 2021 and is expected to be complete by the year 2025.
