PRESCOTT, WI – The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northwest Region will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss improvements to WIS 29 between US 10 and South Junction County Trunk Highway QQ in Pierce County. The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at the Prescott City Hall located at 800 Borner Street, Prescott, Wisconsin 54021.

The meeting will be an informal open house. Exhibits showing the plan concepts will be on display. Project representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.

This project involves removing the existing concrete pavement and replacing it with new asphalt, replacing 11 culvert pipes, and removing and installing new guardrail.
