The Wisconsin Department of Transportation held a public meeting to discuss proposed improvements along Sheridan Road from Alford Park Drive in Kenosha to 21st Street in Racine on Oct. 20 at Carthage College Campbell Student Union Auditorium, 2001 Alford Park Drive.
WisDOT staff was on site to answer residents’ questions and look at maps of the different options considered. The purpose of the project is to address the deteriorating pavement condition, decreased ride quality, and to improve safety for bicycles and pedestrians along this segment of Sheridan Road. The improvements include:
- Resurface Sheridan Road
- Update signals at signalized intersections
- Potential lane-reductions with a two-way left-turn lane (TWLTL) in the center.
- Examining possible sidewalks between Alford Park Drive and Highway A (Seventh Street)
- On-road bike accommodations
The meeting materials and exhibits are on the WisDOT website. The presentation material from the Sept. 9, 2021 work session is available here. The packet from that meeting is online here.
Another public meeting will be held next year. Construction is scheduled to take place in 2025.
