Governor Evers approves WIS 32/Parkview Road intersection improvements in Brown County

​Intersection reconstruction begins June 10

Release date: June 4, 2019

(Brown County) To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Governor Evers signed a $970,00 contract to improve the WIS 32 (Ashland Ave.) and Parkview Road intersection in the city of De Pere, Brown County. Work is scheduled to begin Monday, June 10 and finish at the end of September of this year. WIS 32 will remain open during construction.

Peters Concrete Company of Green Bay, Wis. is the prime contractor.

Project improvements

WisDOT is modifying access and constructing safety improvements at the intersection of WIS 32 (Ashland Avenue) and Parkview Road. The new intersection will not allow crossing movements or left-turn movements from Parkview Road.  Improvements include:

  • Construct a new access point to Parkview Road.
    • The west leg of Parkview Road will be moved 400’ south of the existing location.
  • Construct a cul-de-sac on Parkview Road and closing the current access point to Ashland Avenue.
  • Construct a median island at the Ashland Ave./Parkview Road current and future intersection. This will restrict through movements and left-out movements from Parkview Road to Ashland Avenue.
  • Construct slotted left-turn lanes on northbound and southbound Ashland Avenue to access westbound and eastbound Parkview Road.

Traffic impacts 

Ashland Avenue will remain open to at least one lane of travel during construction.

  • Lane closures on Ashland Avenue throughout project, both directions.
  • Left-turn movement from Ashland southbound lanes to Parkview Road will be closed for stage three of construction.
    • Stage three anticipated from August 12 to September 6 (subject to change). 
  • Parkview Road will be closed from the Ashwaubenon Creek Bridge to Ashland Avenue for stage four of construction.
    • Stage four anticipated from September 6 to September 27 (subject to change).

Project benefits

A significant crash history exists at this intersection. This project will improve safety by reducing the amount of conflict points and likelihood of high-angle, side-impact crashes that typically cause the most serious types of injury and fatality in a crash.
