DEVELOPING: Officials discuss removing off ramps on HWY 51/HWY U interchange


WAUSAU (WAOW)--Officials at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation have some big changes in store for the reconstruction of the US 51/Business 51/Marathon County K interchange on Wausau's north side.

Anna Wisner, the WisDOT project manager, says that a statewide study revealed that reconstructing the County Highway U Bridge is a high priority. Wisner says there are 3 main options, some of which include removing exit ramps connecting Highway 51 to County Highway U.

That change in off ramps could have a big impact on area businesses and Northcentral Technical College. That's why representatives are holding an informational meeting tonight. They'll discuss the plans and allow time for public input.

Newsline 9's Colby Robertson is following this story and will have more details tonight on Newsline 9 at 5, 6 and 10.

If you want to attend the meeting, head over to Room 5 of the Marathon County Complex, 212 River Drive, Wausau. The meeting is slated from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. A brief presentation is scheduled to begin at 5:30 PM

Citizens who are unable to attend the meeting, or would like more information, may contact Anna Wisner, WisDOT project supervisor, at (715) 365-5717. Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Anna Wisner, 510 North Hanson Lake Road, Rhinelander, WI, 54501.
