WIS 80, from the Juneau County line to WIS 173 (north), Wood County
The existing pavement
on WIS 80 will be removed and replaced with new asphalt pavement on top of the
existing base course. Along with the pavement replacement, the
sharp curve in Babcock will be reconstructed to help mitigate safety issues. Multiple locations of beam guard
will be upgraded to meet current standards. Necessary maintenance of several culvert
pipes within the project limits will also be completed. The WIS 80 storm sewer
system in Babcock will also be upgrade to help improve drainage.
it is anticipated that WIS 80 will be closed to traffic. During construction,
WIS 80 traffic will be detoured via WIS 21, WIS 13 and WIS 173 north. WIS 173
traffic will be detoured via WIS 21 and WIS 13.
Construction operations will be
staged on either side of Necedah Road to ensure access to the community of
Babcock. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained. However,
temporary driveway closures will be necessary during parts of the construction
process. WisDOT will contact homeowners and businesses in advance before
closing a driveway.
At this time, we
anticipate some Temporary Limited Easement (TLE) acquisitions.
