The intersection of WIS 29 and County MMM/Clark Drive is experiencing ongoing crashes, and the existing pavement is in need of maintenance. To address these, WisDOT is proposing:

  • Reconfiguring the intersection into a J-turn or median U-turn or restricting turning movements onto WIS 29 from County MMM/Clark Drive.
  • Repairing the concrete pavement.

Construction – expected to take four months – currently is scheduled to begin in spring 2025, but work could begin as early as fall 2024.
