Status/phase

April 2018 Update: Utility work taking place

The activity taking place in this area is the utility relocation effort needed prior to the start of the roadway construction project. There are two planned full closures of WIS 32 and one on WIS 31 to accomplish this work.

  • The WIS 32 closure for work to be completed south of WIS 31 will post a detour route using 4 Mile Road and WIS 31. For the closure north of WIS 31, the detour route will be using 6 Mile, WIS 38 and 7 Mile.

  • The closure of WIS 31, between 6 Mile Road and WIS 32, will use a short detour using 6 Mile Road and WIS 32. 
  • For additional information on utility coordination and schedules with these closures, please visit caledoniawi.com or contact the Village of Caledonia Utility District Department Head, Tony Bunkelman at (262) 835-6416 or abunkelman@caledoniawi.com.

Throughout the various utility work, there will also be lane closures controlled by flaggers to allow traffic to flow, as well as shoulder closures. Access for businesses and residents will be maintained.
