I-94 North-South Freeway Project

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is reconstructing the I-94 North-South corridor in southeast Wisconsin. The project runs from the Illinois state line to the Mitchell Interchange, and includes the WIS 119 Airport Spur to the General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee.


The project is improving safety while reducing congestion and modernizing the important 35-mile transportation artery. The I-94 North-South Freeway Project is the fastest-paced Mega Project in WisDOT history. This project has a very aggressive schedule reducing the estimated completion time down from 2 ½ to 1 ½ years for the bulk of the project corridor.  


This major effort requires especially close ties between WisDOT, project engineers and planners, and the community. The primary aim of the community outreach effort is to minimize the impacts of construction.  De Vor was hired as a subconsultant to provide public outreach services during the final design and construction phases of the project in Kenosha, Racine and Milwaukee counties. 


Key outreach elements include:

  • Implementing the Public Involvement Plan
  • Organizing official key stakeholder outreach 
  • Holding business/neighborhood/public meetings
  • Preparing and communicating project updates on a timely basis
  • Hosting presentations to businesses/public 
  • Developing informational brochures to communicate vital schedule information and alternate routes
  • Creating directional sheets for affected businesses
  • Temporary business signage
