With the number of accidents at the angle intersection of Forest Home Avenue and 92nd Street a concern, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has alternatives for remedying the situation and it wants public input.

It will hold a public involvement meeting 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, at the Greenfield City Hall, 7325 W. Forest Home Ave.

One of the alternatives involves acquiring land for bicycle lanes, the intersection being near the Oak Leaf bicycle trail. Bicyclists have been involved in traffic accidents at the intersection, as have pedestrians.

The proposed improvements include adding traffic signals and a left turn lane for westbound traffic on Forest Home. The traffic lights are expected to reduce the number of angle crashes and improve the safety of bike and pedestrian crossings.

The meeting will be conducted in an open house format. The objective is to familiarize people with the proposed improvements. No formal presentation will be given. Transportation department representatives will be available to address questions or concerns.

Construction is anticipated in 2019.

Anyone unable to attend the meeting, or who would like more information may contact Cindy Flower, WisDOT project manager, at 262-548-5695 or Written comments regarding the project can be mailed to Cindy Flower, 141 NW Barstow Street, P.O. Box 798, Waukesha, WI 53187-0798.

Citizens who are hard-of-hearing and require an interpreter may request one by contacting Flower.
