WIS 22, Montello - Marquette County


WIS 22 between 5th Street and County C, Montello, Marquette County


The identified needs on this section of WIS 22 include: 

  • Deteriorating asphalt and concrete pavements
  • Roadway drainage issues along East Montello Street
  • Bridge maintenance for the West Montello Street bridge located in downtown Montello
  • Erosion of the stream bottom around the bridge piers of the Main Street bridge (over the Montello and Fox Rivers)

Proposed improvements

The primary purpose of the project is to address the deteriorating pavements and bridge needs to ensure that the public's investment in the infrastructure is maximized. 

Improvements include: 

  • Asphalt resurfacing
  • Concrete repairs at the downtown intersection
  • Inlet repairs
  • ADA compliant ramp upgrades
  • Scour mitigation for the bridges over the Fox and Montello rivers
  • Beam painting and deck overlay on the Montello Street bridge
