Help Map Rural Broadband Speeds - Take Part in a Voluntary Internet
Speed Test

Governor Evers has created a Task Force on Broadband Access and as part
of that, the Wisconsin Department of Instruction is asking for help to better
collect information on internet speeds throughout the state.

In partnership with Measurement Lab, the DPI invites ALL residents and
businesses to test their home internet speeds using M-Lab’s speed test. Data
produced by the test provides broadband planning groups additional
information to target improvements where internet performance is poor.

Please consider taking a moment of your day to assist in this project, by
visiting the following website and performing an internet ‘speed test’ -

Participation in measuring internet speed throughout Columbia Co. and WI is
completely voluntary, and performing this simple test will help to paint a more
accurate picture of the state’s actual broadband connectivity network. -
Thank you.

Public Hearing for the Replacement of the I39/90/94 Wisconsin River

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is providing notice of
a public hearing for the proposed improvement of I-39/90/94 in Columbia
County, Wisconsin.

The proposed improvement includes:

  • Replacement of the existing I-39/90/94 Wisconsin River bridge with a
    new bridge that would accommodate construction staging, future
    maintenance work, and future traffic needs
  • Replacement of the County U and County V bridges over I-39/90/94
  • Construction of retaining walls to avoid impacts to transmission

There will be no relocation of persons or businesses as a result of the
proposed improvement.
