Bies co-sponsors roundabout legislation

State Rep. Garey Bies signed on to legislation this week that would give village, town and city governments the final say on whether the state can build a highway roundabout in their municipality.

"Several roundabout projects are being considered in our area," Bies, R-Sister Bay, said in a news release. "And I think local folks should have a direct say as to whether or not they want these in their communities."

When Bies made his monthly visit last week on the WDOR radio talk show, the issue generating the most calls was the proposed roundabouts. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is considering roundabouts along Wisconsin 42/57 in Sturgeon Bay: at Egg Harbor Road and Michigan Street.

"There might be good arguments for putting these in, but what I'm hearing from constituents is they want to be part of the conversation," Bies said. "This legislation will give them an opportunity to express their thoughts to their local governments."

The DOT intends to share the conceptual plan with the public this fall. The public comment period will follow either later this year or early in 2014. The final designs will likely be completed by fall of next year.
