Business meetings set before and during Marquette Road Project

The city of Prairie du Chien, along with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) and Prairie du Chien Area Chamber of Commerce, will be hosting a series of public information meetings, starting later this month, as work is set to commence May 5 on the Marquette Road project. All meetings will be open to the public, and businesses impacted by the project are encouraged to attend. The meeting schedule is as follows:

Initial meeting
Wednesday, April 30, 1 p.m.

This pre-construction meeting will be held in the Community Room of City Hall. Representatives from the city, the DOT, and the contractor, H. James and Sons, will be present to address the revised construction schedule, the construction timetable, detour concerns, and other issues related to the project.

Construction meetings
Public meetings with the city, DOT and contractor will be held every other Wednesday, starting on May 7, at 2:30 p.m. These meetings will be held in the Community Room of City Hall and allow impacted and concerned businesses the opportunity to have their questions and concerns regarding the project addressed.

“With the possibility that this project will not be entirely completed in 2014, we want to make sure the flow of information to everyone affected is very clear,” City Administrator Aaron Kramer said. “I would also like to remind people that if they cannot attend meetings, they can email, call or stop by my office to have their concerns and questions addressed.”

The project will involve the reconstruction of nearly one mile of Marquette Road, from Mooney Street to Washington Street. During the time the project is underway, there will be several detour routes for motorists to follow. Once completed, Marquette Road will feature three roundabouts, at Blackhawk Avenue, Iowa Street and Wisconsin Street.
