WI 13:
WI 13 is a Super-2 expressway on the Prentice Bypass.


US 14:
A study is underway to see if a US 14 expressway should be built between I-39/90 and I-43 at Darien.

Study Schedule:

Phase 1 - Needs Assessment (fall 2003 to spring 2004)
The Needs Assessment phase focuses on how the highway currently serves the people living and working in the area and how the highway is expected to operate in the future. Public meetings were held November 11 and November 13, 2003. The project team will gather data about a variety of issues, such as current and future traffic volumes, crash data, environmental constraints, and how the highway affects land use patterns and the general economics of the area.

Phase 2 - Develop alternatives (spring to fall, 2004)
A full range of improvement alternatives will be developed to meet the corridor's needs during the second phase.

Phase 3 - Evaluate alternatives (fall 2004 to spring 2005)
The third phase will involve evaluating the different alternatives, based on level of safety improvement, cost, right-of-way needs, environmental and local impacts, and other factors.

Phase 4 - Preparing the Environmental Impact Statement (spring to fall, 2005)
In the fourth phase, the project team will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that compares the impacts of the alternatives including a "no build" option. The EIS will make a final recommendation of a preferred alternative.
