Governor Evers approves US 45 resurfacing project in Langlade County

Work includes sealing cracks, replacing pavement marking, installing safety edge

Release date: July 14, 2022 

To invest in Wisconsin's transportation system, Gov. Tony Evers has signed a $1.28 million contract with Mosinee-based prime contractor American Asphalt of Wisconsin for an improvement project on US 45 in Langlade County from Rusch Road to County B. Construction is scheduled to start Monday, July 18.

The pavement on this segment of US 45 is showing signs of deterioration. To extend the life of the pavement, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation project will:

  • Remove the upper layer of the pavement surface on both north- and southbound traffic lanes and shoulders and overlay them with an equal depth of asphalt.
  • Replace pavement marking to improve safety.
  • Replace curb and gutter in spot locations.
  • Install a pavement safety edge along the inside paved shoulder of north- and southbound passing lanes to allow drivers who drift off the highway to return to the pavement safely.

During construction, one lane of US 45 with a maximum width of 10 to 12 feet will remain open to traffic in each direction.

Construction is scheduled for completion in mid-August. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather and construction progress.
