Public input sought for Hwy 13 project in 2023

A public involvement meeting was previously planned to discuss proposed improvements to STH 13 between CTH N (Monroe Street) in the city of Colby and Pine Street in the city of Abbotsford.

An in-person meeting will not be held for this project, but the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) North Central Region is seeking input on the proposed improvements until Friday, Dece.18, in alternative formats: Residents, property, and business owners within the project limits have been mailed a handout with a comment form that can be mailed back.

Input can also be submitted via online survey: wis13colbyabbotsford The handout, maps, a presentation, and other information are available on the project website, in English and Spanish, at projects/by-region/nc/wis13mc/public. aspx Proposed improvements include:
