Sheridan Road Open House
COMMUNITY INVITED TO OPEN HOUSE AND PUBIC HEARING REGARDING ACCESS MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR STATE HIGHWAY 32 (SHERIDAN ROAD) BETWEEN 91ST STREET AND THE STATE LINE
Open House from 3 - 5 p.m. on Monday, February 13 with Public Hearing at 6 p.m.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) along with Village of Pleasant Prairie staff have developed an access management plan for State Highway 32 (Sheridan Road) from 91st Street to the Illinois State Line. The purpose of the WIS 32 Access Management Plan is to provide WisDOT and the Village of Pleasant Prairie a unified, long-range access management vision for this corridor.

The plan is intended be used as a comprehensive and collaborative tool for evaluation of future access requests as development and redevelopment occurs adjacent to WIS 32. Our goal is to maintain WIS 32 as a safe and efficient arterial roadway while also providing adequate access to properties along the highway.

This access plan gives WisDOT and the Village of Pleasant Prairie a holistic approach to managing access and making access related decisions along this stretch of highway. Planning for and implementing good access management practices on an arterial roadway such as WIS 32 can prolong the life of that facility’s capacity threshold and delay the need for capacity expansion projects.
The plan identifies strategies to: manage existing access; manage new access due to changing land uses; plan for a supportive local road network; and improve coordination between WisDOT and the Village of Pleasant Prairie.

While the Access Plan is not a legally binding document, it is a documented good faith effort by WisDOT and Pleasant Prairie to plan for corridor level access management in a way that does not adversely affect the safety or efficiency of the State highway.
