WIS 153, Mosinee

​Location

WIS 153, Rangeline Road to Water Street, Mosinee, Marathon County

Overview

We’ve identified the following issues on this section of WIS 153:
 
  • The pavement is deteriorating.
  • Some of the storm sewer structures are deteriorating.
  • Sections of curb and gutter are severely deteriorated.
  • Most of the curb ramps do not meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
  • The traffic signal controller and the loops at the intersection of Main and 4th streets are not working properly.
  • High crash rate for right turning vehicles from WIS 153 (4th Street) onto eastbound WIS 153 (Main Street).
 
To address the identified needs, we are proposing to: 
 
  • Replace the pavement between Rangeline Road and Novak Street.
  • Resurface the pavement between Novak Street and Water Street.
  • Replace deteriorated curb and gutter.
  • Repair deteriorated storm sewer structures.
  • Replace pedestrian curb ramps that do not meet current Americans with Disabilities Act standards 
  • Replace the traffic signal equipment and loops at the 4th Street and Main Street intersection
  • Installation of right-turn signals for the right turn movement from WIS 153 (4th Street) onto eastbound WIS 153 (Main Street).

Other planned improvements: 

  • New sidewalk between Rangeline Road and Novak Street, on the north side of WIS 153 
  • City water services on the south and east sides of WIS 153, between Rangeline Road and Fremont Street, will be replaced during construction.

Proposed traffic impacts during construction

  • Temporary traffic signals
  • Lane closures
  • Flagging operations
  • On-street parking restrictions
  • Temporary side road closures 

Real estate

Some permanent fee acquisition and temporary easements will be needed for construction of the new sidewalk, and where pedestrian curb ramps will be replaced.
