WIS 32 project finishes on time and on budget in Oconto County

Suring resurfacing and bridge replacement finishes on time and on budget

Release Date: September 13, 2022

​(Suring) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region announces completion of all major construction on 10.2 miles of WIS 32 from Trinity Church Road through the village of Suring to County AA in the town of Breed. The project also replaced the WIS 32 bridge deck over the south branch of the Oconto River north of County M in Suring. Work began April 11, 2022. The $7.77 million project finishes on time and on budget.

The project included resurfacing in downtown Suring, replacement of the bridge deck north of County M, widening of paved shoulders, replacement of various culverts and sidewalk curb ramps, and pavement markings and signage. Northeast Asphalt, Inc. from Greenville, Wis. was the Prime Contractor.

​Improvements provide a smoother and safer ride for motorists. Replacing the bridge deck and resurfacing the roadway pavement extends the life of the pavement structure and bridge while reducing future maintenance costs. Repair and replacement of culverts helps ensure adequate drainage to mitigate possible flooding. Wider paved shoulders provide a better recovery area for errant vehicles. Enhanced sidewalk curb ramps that meet current ADA standards provide a safer crosswalk.

Please see the WIS 32 Project construction website for detailed scope, schedule and a history of the project. The website also contains maps and displays.
