WIS 22, Shawano, Shawano County


WIS 22, Shawano, Shawano County

South Main Street and East Green Bay Street - County B to East Zingler Avenue and County HHH to County BE

Green Bay Street - Main Street to County HHH


We have identified several needs along this section of WIS 22 including:

  • Deteriorating pavement
  • Deteriorating railroad crossing surface between Hamlin Street and Ellis Street with need for improved signals and gates
  • Deteriorating culvert and guardrails at Murray Creek
  • Traffic signal timing changes needed to improve traffic flow

Proposed improvements

  • Resurface WIS 22 to maintain pavement
  • Replace the railroad crossing between Hamlin Street and Ellis Street
  • Replace guardrail and culvert repair at Murray Creek
  • Permanent signal timing changes to improve traffic movements
  • Install new signing and pavement marking
  • Curb ramp upgrades
  • Sidewalk continuity along East Green Bay Street

These needs will be evaluated during the design process to determine if additional improvements are required. If improvements are required, separate projects may need to be scheduled or the WIS 22 project timeline may need to be adjusted.

Traffic impacts

An improvement project is currently scheduled for 2019. During construction, WIS 22 will remain open to traffic, except during a short-term detour via WIS 47/55 and WIS 29, for the replacement of the railroad crossing (one to two weeks). Motorists can expect to encounter periodic flagging operations and single lane closures on WIS 22 in each direction.
