3-4 weeks of construction expected
Release Date: July 13, 2020
(Fox Cities) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region discovered pavement quality issues on WIS 441/US 10 between Racine Road and Oneida Street. The contractor will be replacing concrete joints in 11 locations. The roadway is safe for drivers. The corrections are being made to ensure the long-term performance of the pavement. Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 13 and last three to four weeks. WIS 441/US 10 will remain open with lane and ramp closures.
“With a complete reconstruct of WIS 441/US 10 over the past few years, we want to be sure the pavement quality lasts long-term. Our inspectors found durability issues, so the contractor is replacing concrete joints in 11 locations with no additional costs to the taxpayer,” said Kurt Peters, WIS 441 Project Construction Manager. “We waited to replace the concrete joints until after the I-41 bridge rehabilitation project was complete to minimize traffic impacts.”
- Contractor to replace concrete joints in 11 locations, redo pavement markings and finish putting in rumble strips. The rumble strips were carryover work from fall of 2019.
- Various single or double lane closures can be expected during repairs. Ramps may also be closed during repairs.
The WIS 441 Tri-County Project reconstructed and expanded US 10/WIS 441 from four to six lanes from Cold Spring Road to about 1/2 mile east of Oneida Street (approximately six miles).
Other project improvements included:
- Restored 2 missing ramp movements on the Michael G. Ellis Interchange (WIS 441/US 10/I- 41 system interchange)
- Added second lake crossing bridge
- Reconstructed 5 interchanges at County P (Racine Road), WIS 47 (Appleton Road), County AP (Midway Road), US 10 (Oneida Street) and Michael G. Ellis Interchange
