Pavement project begins Monday, August 22
Release Date: August 16, 2022
(Green Bay) To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Governor Evers signed an $17.14 million contract to improve nine miles of US 41 from Norfield Road in the town of Suamico in Brown County to US 141 in the town of Abrams in Oconto County. Construction begins Monday, August 22, 2022 and pauses for winter shutdown on Oct. 31, 2022. The project will begin again next spring with a final completion date of end of July 2023. Various lanes on US 41 will be closed during construction.
Northeast Asphalt, Inc. from Greenville, Wis. is the Prime Contractor.
Resurfacing of US 41 in Oconto and Brown counties will include milling 3 inches and overlaying with 3.75 inches, culvert pipe replacements, overhead sign structure, base patching, guardrail upgrades, and pavement marking.
US 41 will remain open during construction with lane and shoulder closures allowed during certain dates/times. Some interchange ramps to US 41 will be have short-term (overnight) closures. Permitted lane closure times on US 41:
- Lane closures are prohibited Monday through Thursday between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on both the northbound and southbound lanes.
- On Fridays, lane closures are prohibited from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on both the northbound and southbound lanes.
- On Saturdays, lane closures are prohibited from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both the northbound and southbound lanes.
- On Sundays, lane closures are prohibited from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on both the northbound and southbound lanes.
Local road closure
Brown Road at US 41 will be closed for a short duration during off-peak hours to replace a culvert crossing.
- The Brown Road closures are expected to start the week of August 29, 2022 and will be closed intermittently thru September 15, 2022.
- Frontage roads along US 41 will remain open during this closure for access to US 41 and other side roads.
The project will address minor deformations and cracking in the pavement surface which will reduce surface roughness and provide a smoother driving surface for motorists. Resurfacing will also increase the roadway useable lifespan. Culvert replacement will assist in the proper drainage of water. New guardrail will help mitigate possible serious crashes.
