The proposed improvements include milling of the top two inches of the roadway surface and paving two new inches of asphaltic pavement. The curb ramps in Lake Tomahawk and Woodruff will be reconstructed to meet ADA standards to the maximum extent practical. The project will also include the rehabilitation or replacement of beam guard and multiple culverts on the corridor.

Proposed traffic impacts

During construction, WIS 47 will remain open to through traffic, but may be limited to one lane during daytime with the use of flaggers. Staged sidewalk closures will also be necessary during curb ramp construction.
