Public Info Meeting on CTH GV Reconstruction Planned

A joint public informational meeting will be held with the Village of Bellevue, Town of Ledgeview and Brown County Highway Department on Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 6pm. The meeting will be held at the Village of Bellevue Public Safety Building at 3100 Eaton Road.

The Brown County Board formally approved reconstructing Highway GV on Wednesday, October 20, 2010. Construction of a roundabout in the Town of Ledgeview at the intersection of County GV and G was completed in September 2011. Bridges, culverts and the roadway will be constructed in 2012.

The four-lane highway will include a 150-foot right-of-way, 20-foot medians, bike lanes and an 8' wide side-path. The project will also include swales that will help in storm water runoff.

The county highway department is finishing engineering plans, acquiring right-of-way land and permitting. Below is the County's preliminary reconstruction schedule:

Permitting and Bidding Structures January - April 2012
Structure and Offline road construction August 2012
Mainline road completion November 2012
