Opportunity

In order to enable sustainable economic growth over time, the City of La Crosse has identified Highway 53 as an important corridor for improvements that will enable further community redevelopment.

Solution

ISG is currently working with stakeholders from the City of La Crosse to develop a study for the Highway 53 Corridor that will serve as a foundation for the City’s long-term commitment to social, economic, and environmental resiliency. In collaboration with consultant partners, ISG is defining opportunities to enhance the Corridor and position it for future growth and redevelopment.

Once complete, the study will serve as a key city resource offering a vision of open access, guiding flexible improvement projects, and recommending redevelopment options and implementation strategies for identified key sites. This will help address the current needs of the community, invite the best of new investment to facilitate the area’s redevelopment, and allow the area to evolve throughout the years to come.
