The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will hold a public information meeting about reconstruction on Oak Leaf Trail in the Whitnall Park area from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1 at Greenfield City Hall, 7325 W. Forest Home Ave., and are encouraging bicyclists and pedestrians who use the trail in the area to come learn about the project and ask questions.

The meeting will focus on the reconstruction of the Forest Home Ave. and 92nd St. intersection near the Root River Parkway. Representatives from WisDOT will host the meeting in an open house format, and those interested may stop in anytime during the two-hour time frame to comment on and ask questions about the plan alternatives.

Design plans include traffic signals, a widened median, and a westbound left turn lane on Forest Home Ave., all designed to address right-angle crashes and crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists.

Another meeting will be held later this year to present the preferred plan. Construction is anticipated in 2019.

For more information, contact Cindy Flower, WisDOT project manager at 262-548-5695 or Cynthia.flower@dot.wi.gov.

Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Flower at 141 NW Barstow Street, P.O. Box 798, Waukesha, WI 53187-0798.

Residents who are hearing-impaired may contact Flower to request an interpreter. TDD calls may be placed through the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System by dialing 7-1-1.
