I-39, WIS 54 to North 2nd Street, Portage County


I-39, between WIS 54 and North 2nd Street, Stevens Point, Portage County


The purpose of the project is to repair the pavement surface to extend the service life of the pavement. Proposed improvements include resurfacing the asphalt pavement on I-39 and most of the ramps through a thin mill and overlay. Additional improvements include:

  • County HH/McDill Avenue resurfacing between I-39 on and off-ramps
  • Replacement of select sections of guardrail
  • Replacement of inlet and outfall structures on the US 10 southbound ramps
  • Geometric improvements to the US 10 northbound on ramp
  • High-friction surface treatment on the northbound lanes under the BUS 51 overpass at the north end of the project
  • Pavement marking
  • Shoulder rumble strips

Traffic Impacts

Construction will take place under single lane closures and nighttime ramp closures. The ramp closures at the US 10 interchange will include posted detours, while all other ramp closures will not include a detour.

Real Estate

There are no anticipated real estate needs.
