Managing Travel for Planned Special Events

Appendix G. Wisconsin DOT Organization and Dissemination of Inter-Jurisdictional Road Construction and Planned Special Event Information

Summertime in Milwaukee is always busy, with entertainment venues of all kinds. Summertime is also the season for road construction, and sometimes the two interfere with each other. This summer, Milwaukee will be hosting the All-Star baseball game and festivities at Miller Park. The annual celebration of baseball will be held on July 9, 2002 and will feature a full week of activities surrounding the All Star Game. When all of the Fourth of July activities, the Circus Parade, and other entertainment in these few weeks are added up, there is a lot to plan for to keep visitors and residents moving during their travels to and from events.

This letter is being sent to various municipalities who may have road construction, street lane closures, or other work that is traffic related and will have an impact on the traveling public. Due to the extra volumes of traffic, it is important for all jurisdictions to work together and share information regarding the road construction. If your city or district has any type of road construction happening during the end of June, 2002 extending in to the beginning of July, 2002, please enclose the following information for each construction event and mail it in the enclosed envelope:

  • City and Street Location of work
  • Time of work and number of lanes closed
  • Type of work
  • Contact Person Name, Desk Phone, Mobile Phone, Fax, Email
  • Any additional information that is necessary for the project description

You may also fax your construction information to 414 227-2164. Please mark them Attention: Lisa. Your prompt attention to this letter is greatly appreciated!

Thank you, and best wishes for a safe and happy 2002.
