Other Transportation Project Websites
SEWRPC frequently supports the conduct of major transportation planning efforts related to implementation of the regional transportation plan. In these cases, SEWRPC maintains separate websites to facilitate access to the processes being followed in conducting, and the significant body of information that derives from, these work efforts. SEWRPC has maintained three such websites (these websites have been archived and are no longer updated given that these work efforts have been completed):
KRM Commuter Link
Technical and environmental studies necessary for the Kenosha-Racine-Milwaukee (KRM) commuter rail project to proceed to implementation were initiated in 2005 by an Intergovernmental Partnership (IGP) of the Counties and Cities of Kenosha, Racine, and Milwaukee, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), and the Regional Planning Commission. The studies were continued in 2009 by the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SERTA), a body created to oversee the development of a KRM commuter rail service, until SERTA dissolved in 2011. Given the dissolution of SERTA, the KRM commuter rail studies have been postponed indefinitely. The archived website documenting this effort may be found here.
Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SERTA)
The Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SERTA) was created by the Wisconsin State Legislature and Governor in July 2009, with SERTA given the responsibility under State law to oversee the development of commuter rail service in Kenosha, Racine, and Milwaukee Counties. In June 2011, the Wisconsin State Legislature and Governor repealed the State law creating SERTA, requiring SERTA to dissolve by September 28, 2011. SEWRPC served as temporary staff to SERTA prior to its dissolution. The archived website documenting this effort may be found here.
Regional Freeway Study
At the request of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, SEWRPC undertook over the period 2000-2003 a special study focusing on the regional freeway system and its reconstruction needs. The archived website documenting this effort may be found here.
