Area road construction update
FOR CITY TIMES
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) North Central Region has provided updates on pending road projects in central Wisconsin. Construction schedules may fluctuate due to weather conditions and crew availability.
A full update can be found at: https://projects.511wi.gov/weeklyupdates-nc/.
Intersection of Highways 13 & 21, scheduled for completion Aug. 15. The project will reconstruct the existing intersection with new hot-mix asphalt. The reconstructed intersection will remain a four-way stop. Traffic islands and curbs will be replaced as part of the project. All movements through the intersection will be open to traffic or require a short detour using the wayside road directly west of the intersection.
Highway: WIS 173, Juneau County line to WIS 80
Schedule: July 7 to Aug. 12
Crews will remove a portion of the existing pavement, recycle the pavement, and then pave new asphalt pavement. In addition, they will replace a culvert and upgrade substandard guardrail.
Crews will be staking out the culvert, installing erosion control and culvert pipes, preparing the roadway for pavement removal and patching the roadway over the culvert pipes.
Motorists can expect single-lane closures controlled by flagging, except during culvert replacement. That work will require a three-day detour from Tuesday to Thursday, July 12 to July 14, via WIS 21 and WIS 80. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained.
