​Release date: April 6, 2021

Work on WIS 47 is scheduled to resume on Monday, April 12, 2021 in Keshena, Menominee county.

Improvements include new asphalt, widening the road for bicycle lanes, new storm sewer and curb and gutter, reconstructing sidewalk and curb ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements and rehabilitation of the bridge over the Wolf River.

Traffic Impacts

  • Starting April 12 through July, northbound WIS 47 between Duquaine Road and County VV (east) will be closed and detoured. Motorists will use Go Around Road, County VV, and WIS 47. Truck and oversize traffic will utilize WIS 22, WIS 29, US 45, and WIS 47.
    • Motorists are urged to use caution on Monday as traffic control will take most of the day to set up.
  • Starting Tuesday, April 13, WIS 47 will be reduced to a single lane with temporary traffic signals on both sides of the Wolf River bridge. Work on the bridge is expected to take two months.
  • Drivers can also expect flagging operations as needed within the work zone.
  • A full list of traffic impacts can be found on the project website here.

Construction is currently scheduled for completion in November 2021. Construction schedules are based on favorable weather conditions and construction status.
