Release date: May 31, 2022
To invest in Wisconsin's transportation system, Gov. Tony Evers has signed a $1.79 million contract with prime contractor Northeast Asphalt, Inc. of Greenville for a resurfacing project on US 8 in Oneida County from US 45 North to the Forest County line. Construction is scheduled to start Monday, June 13.
US 8 is showing signs of deterioration. To address this, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation project will:
- Remove a portion of the existing roadway pavement and place new asphalt pavement.
- Replace culverts.
- Relay culvert end sections.
- Replace deteriorated areas of curb and gutter.
During construction, US 8 will remain open to traffic, but motorists will encounter single-lane closures controlled by flagging operations. Construction is scheduled for completion in early August.
