Release date: May 24, 2022

To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Gov. Tony Evers has signed a $2.44 million contract with prime contractor Pitlik & Wick Inc. of Eagle River for a resurfacing project on US 45 between the Oneida County line and WIS 70 in Eagle River. Construction is scheduled to begin Tuesday, May 31.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation project will replace culvert pipes and resurface the highway.

Construction is scheduled for completion in July. The construction schedule is based on favorable weather conditions and construction status.
