City officials in Eau Claire have decided to join an intergovernmental agreement to widen the County’s Highway T corridor.
Eau Claire and Chippewa Counties have also joined the regional compact for the project. City officials say it would be the biggest project in the area since Highway 53 was completed. Under the plan, County Highway T would expand from a two-lane road to four lanes along the corridor that stretches from North Crossing in Eau Claire County to Highway 29 in Chippewa County. More funding is yet needed for the project and officials say it could be 2027 before the project begins.
