State Highway 50 - Williams Bay, Wisconsin

STH 50

The firm's transportation division was retained by Wisconsin Department of Transportation to design the widening of WIS 50 in Williams Bay from two lanes to four lanes.

An environmental assessment was prepared, incorporating extensive design refinements that were necessary to avoid or minimize environmental impacts, including a public park, historical sites and archaeological sites.

The golf course adjacent to a portion of the highway was concerned that the widening would destroy the ambience of the course and be detrimental to the caliber of play.

The firm's visualization division was brought in to create images depicting what the potential views from the golf course would be after project completion. The challenge was to portray the visual impact the widened highway would have on the golf course in terms of vegetation loss, as well as overall aesthetics.
