Local representatives Richards, Larson, and Sinicki neighborhood meeting to consider bike/pedestrian lane on Hoan

August 16, 2011

Letter from Rep. Jon Richards

Dear Neighbor,

Tuesday, Aug. 23, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, I am hosting another neighborhood meeting on the Hoan Bridge reconstruction project with Sen. Chris Larson, Rep. Christine Sinicki, and state transportation officials.  This meeting is devoted solely to talking about a possible Hoan Bridge bicycle lane.  It will be held in the Beulah Brinton Cafeteria Room, 2555 South Bay Street in Bay View.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is currently studying the feasibility of adding a bicycle lane to the Hoan Bridge.  DOT expects to complete its study sometime this fall, so now is the time to make your voice heard if you have an opinion about biking the Hoan.

Our Aug. 23 meeting at Beulah Brinton will provide you with an excellent opportunity to learn more about the DOT bike lane study and to let state transportation officials know how you feel about adding a bike lane to the Hoan Bridge.  I hope to see you there!

The DOT has also set up a website devoted to the Hoan Bridge project where you can find the latest information on the project here.

As always, it is a pleasure to be able to stay in touch with you!  Please feel free to contact me with any concerns, questions or ideas you may have.
