A property’s eligibility for inclusion on the National Register of Historical Places has prompted the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to hold another informational meeting regarding the proposed construction of a roundabout at Highways 45 and K along the Bristol/Paris border.

The subject property is at 6030 Highway 45 (Bristol Road). the meeting will be to inform and present the impacts of the improvements on the property. There will no formal presentation, but members of the project team will be available to answer questions rom the public.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Kenosha County Center hearing room, Highways 45 and 50 in Bristol.

The state has said they are proposing a roundabout for the intersection because it has experienced more than double the allowable threshold of crashes per year. Earlier this year, the state made the former two-way stop interesection a four-way stop intersection.

    I’m not opposed to roundabouts at most intersections. However, this intersection needs a stop light. Not a roundabout. Drivers have changed in the past several years. I’ve already dealt with mass confusion at the highway C and MB roundabout, and that’s not nearly as busy. I’m just saying, it will be simpler to just put stoplights up.
