DOT’s ‘Transportation Moves Wisconsin’ Launches
For the City-Times
Town hall meetings and online options for feedback on transportation funding needs
Transportation Moves Wisconsin is the theme of a new initiative of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT). The program is focused on getting feedback from people around the state about transportation needs and how the state should finance those needs into the future.
“Transportation Moves Wisconsin is aimed at giving more visibility to the state’s multimodal transportation system and to engage people around the state in talking about how it impacts their lives,” said WisDOT Secretary Mark Gottlieb. “The feedback we receive will be important in the development of the next state transportation budget.”
As part of the initiative, Secretary Gottlieb will be traveling around the state to host a series of town hall meetings. All meetings will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. with a formal presentation provided at each site at 5:30 p.m. The meetings are scheduled for:
Tuesday, April 8 Wisconsin Department of Transportation Southwest Region Office 3550 Mormon Coulee Road La Crosse, Wisconsin
Wednesday, April 9 Wisconsin Department of Transportation Southwest Region Office 2101 Wright Street Madison, Wisconsin
Tuesday, April 15 Wisconsin Department of Transportation Northwest Region Office 1701 N. 4th Street Superior, Wisconsin
Wednesday, April 16 UW-Eau Claire Davies Center – Centennial Hall Eau Claire, Wisconsin
Wednesday, April 30 Northcentral Technical College 1000 W. Campus Drive Center for Health Sciences Auditorium, Room 1004 Wausau, Wisconsin
Wednesday, May 7 WisDOT/US 41 Project Office 1940 West Mason Street Green Bay, Wisconsin

Region staff from the department will be present at the town hall meetings to answer general questions about upcoming projects, but the meetings are focused on broader issues and the need to identify new revenue to make infrastructure investments in all modes of transportation.
All meeting sites are accessible to wheelchair. Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing and require an interpreter may arrange for one by contacting the WisDOT Office of Public Affairs at (608) 266-3581 or [email protected] at least three days prior to a meeting.
There is also an option for people to submit comments to the department via the web. Go to the WisDOT website (www.wisconsindot.gov) and click on the Transportation Moves Wisconsin logo.
