The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is announcing a public information meeting to discuss reconstruction of the train shed at the Milwaukee Intermodal Station. The train shed is a 50,000 square foot facility immediately south of the station that is used to protect trains and passengers from the elements. The project will bring the facility into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The new structure will be 121 feet wide, 400 feet long, and 56 feet high. The train shed will include a partial mezzanine spanning 5 tracks and 3 boarding platforms, stairways, escalators, elevators, ventilation systems, lighting, and signage.

The meeting is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. on August 24, 2010 at the Milwaukee Intermodal Station Atrium, 433 West St. Paul Avenue, Milwaukee and will include information on the train shed’s reconstruction. Members of the WisDOT project team will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the project.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions concerning the project. Drawings showing the proposed train shed will be on display.
