The coronavirus forced the cancellation of a public meeting where information would have been presented on a proposed hybrid J-turn for the state Highway 29 and County Road U intersection last week, but the Wisconsin Department of Transportation still seeks public comment on the project.

Information that was going to be presented at the cancelled meeting can be found online at https://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/projects/by-region/nc/wis29shawano/public.... Comments can be emailed to project manager Timothy Hanley at timothy.hanley@dot.wi.gov, and DOT must receive them by April 15.

An environmental document is expected to be signed by May, with final plans to be drawn up by November. Construction is currently scheduled for 2021.
