US 10/WIS 66 bridge over I-39

​Location

The US 10/WIS 66 bridge over I-39, Stevens Point, Portage County. 

Overview

The objective of the project is to improve pedestrian accommodations, reduce crashes and extend the life of the bridge.

To meet these needs, we propose to:

  • Replace the bridge deck and approaches
  • Paint the steel components of the bridge
  • Widen the sidewalk on the bridge
  • Shift left turn lanes
  • Extend the US 10 auxiliary lane through the Maple Bluff Road intersection
  • Signalize the I-39 northbound ramp intersection
  • Install a traffic signal head over each lane

Traffic impacts

  • I-39 will remain open to traffic with periodic single lane closures.
  • US 10/WIS 66 will be reduced to three lanes; two eastbound and one westbound
  • Turning movements onto I-39 will be restricted to right turns
  • The I-39 northbound off ramp to US 10 east will be closed for the duration of 2022 construction
  • Temporary traffic signals will be used at the Country Club Drive and Maple Bluff Drive intersections

Schedule

  • Local officials meeting – August 1, 2019
  • Public involvement meeting – August 22, 2019
  • Complete project design – May 2021
  • Construction currently scheduled to begin - Spring 2022
