WisDOT completes Highway 64 freeway/expressway conversion study


WisDOT presented four alternatives for eventually converting a segment of Highway 64 to a freeway or expressway between 150th Avenue in the Town of St. Joseph and Highway 65 in New Richmond at a public information meeting Wednesday, Nov. 6, at Somerset High School.

The purpose of the meeting was to present and collect input from citizens who live, work and travel Highway 64. This project is independent of the St. Croix Crossing bridge project.
