Project location

WIS 27, Prairie du Chien - Eastman, Crawford County

Project overview

WIS 27 (Cipra Road to Meadow Lane), Prairie du Chien - Eastman, Crawford County

The project begins 500’ north of Cipra Road and ends at Meadow Lane. The proposed recondition work consists of milling the existing pavement and adding new asphaltic pavement. This will require a small consistent profile grade raise. This raise and wider shoulders will require grading on the side slopes along the entire project length. There are some sections of the roadway that will be reconstructed with an entirely new pavement structure with alignment adjustments to meet current standards due to crash history. The WIS 27/Plum Creek Road intersection will be realigned; access to St. Wenceslaus church will be constructed from Plum Creek Road.

WIS 27 (Meadow Lane to Water Street), Eastman, Crawford County

This project begins at Meadow Lane and ends 570’ north of Water Street. The project is a reconstruction of the entire roadway. The roadway will have new curb and gutter, sidewalk, asphaltic pavement, pavement marking and permanent signing. Storm sewer will be  replaced and will match into the existing outfall pipes. Hydrants, curb stops, and water valves will be either be relocated or adjusted.
