Wisconsin Department of Transportation has scheduled an open house-style meeting Monday, Aug. 13, to discuss the ongoing reconstruction of County Highway MM and the intersection of Highway MM and Highway 38.

The meeting will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday at Mount Pleasant Village Hall, Room 1, 8811 Campus Drive.

The project contractor and WisDOT construction staff will be available to discuss the project and address questions or concerns.

Work on the County Highway MM project began in April and is expected to be completed in November, though the construction schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.

County Highway MM, also known as North Green Bay Road from State Highway 31 (Ole Davidson Road) to State Highway 38 (Northwestern Avenue) is closed to all traffic for the reconstruction project. Drivers should use Highways 31 and 38 as a detour. Access to businesses and homes in and around the project is being maintained.

According to a Racine County Government website that addresses local transportation projects:

“Racine County is entering a new chapter of its history, and that means updating and expanding infrastructure.

“There’s no doubt road construction will be a challenge for some Racine County residents and motorists in the next few years, including on Interstate 94 and around the future Foxconn site in southwestern Mount Pleasant.

“We are working hard, in partnership with WisDOT, to minimize inconveniences for residents. We believe it will be worth it in the end as our region prepares for the massive growth and opportunities that lie ahead.”
