Release Date: February 18, 2022
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is seeking public input on proposed improvements to WIS 13 between North Street and Mound View Drive in the village of Friendship, Adams County. Construction is currently scheduled for 2026 but could occur as early as 2024.
Proposed improvements include:
- Removing the concrete surface, patching, and overlaying with asphalt
- Replacing sections of deteriorated curb and gutter
- Upgrading curb ramps to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards
- Repairing storm sewer inlets
- Constructing new curb ramps and crosswalk at Mound View Drive
WisDOT is considering construction of minor modifications to intersections including bump-outs in the downtown area. The bump-outs would shorten the crossing distance and improve visibility for drivers and pedestrians and would result in reduced real estate impacts to nearby steps and building entrances.
During construction, WIS 13 will remain open to traffic during construction. Motorists can expect to encounter daily flagging operations with a temporary signal between County J and Mound View Drive. Access to residents and businesses along the project corridor will be maintained. Brief interruptions at driveways may occur.
Additional right of way will be required consisting of both permanent and temporary easements at the intersections to accommodate new curb ramps. Landowner rights information and preliminary right of way maps are available on the project website.
