Governor Evers approves WIS 70 improvements in Oneida County

Release date: June 15, 2021

To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Governor Evers recently signed a $1,456,001 contract to improve WIS 70, between Morgan Road and US 51 in Minocqua. Work is scheduled to begin June 16, 2021.


American Asphalt, Inc., is the prime contractor for the project. Crews will remove and replace asphalt, update curb ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, install two thermoplastic snowmobile crossings, and perform spot repairs on existing curb and gutter, traffic signals and inlets.

During construction, WIS 70 will be open. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction.  

Construction is scheduled for completion by August 2021. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction progress.
