WisDOT Seeking Public Input on Watertown Bridge Replacement

(Jefferson County) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will be holding a meeting to seek public input for a proposed project to replace the WIS 19, Main Street bridge in Watertown.  A virtual public presentation detailing the project design process is now available online, allowing residents an opportunity to weigh in on the preliminary design plans for the replacement of the bridge.  Scheduled for construction in 2026, the project includes replacing the existing structure and approaches on both sides of the bridge.  The public is encouraged to view the project information and provide input on the four design alternatives under consideration.  A comment form will accompany the proposed plans online.

Those looking to view the proposed plans can do so online at www.wisconsindot.gov under Southwest Region Highway Projects and Studies (Jefferson County Design Projects).  Questions and comments can also be directed to WisDOT Project Manager Steve Porter at (608) 243-3366. Written comments can be emailed to Steve Porter, [email protected], or mailed to 2101 Wright St, Madison, WI 53704.
