  • Mid-April - November 2018 - Construction scheduled

Traffic impacts/detours

Heading north on WIS 80 from Richland Center, the highway will be open to through traffic until the intersection with WIS 56. At this point, WIS 80 will remain open to local traffic only. Bridge out closures will remain in effect for the bridge replacement locations until completion, with access to these areas via county roads. The posted state highway detour route will utilize US 14, WIS 58, and WIS 33. The project will also utilize flagging operations for traffic control. Motorists should anticipate delays near the work zone.
