Waukesha west bypass impact assessment begins

By Laurel Walker of the Journal Sentinel

Waukesha – Work has started on determining the environmental and social impacts of a west-Waukesha bypass, and a committee of about 20 people representing citizen, government and business interests has been organized to participate in the process.

Initial work under way involves gathering information on wetlands, soil, groundwater and traffic counts. The first advisory committee meeting – one of about five planned this year – will be from 4 to 6 p.m. March 24 at Retzer Nature Center. The public can attend for information, but not participate with comments or questions, said Allison Bussler, public works director for Waukesha County.
