US 141 Resurfacing - Marinette County

​U​S 141 (County Z to County R), Marinette County

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is seeking public feedback on the below design proposal for construction on US 141 in Marinette County. The purpose of this outreach is to obtain your input on the identified needs and proposed improvements along US 141 from 0.14 miles south of County Z to 0.22 miles south of County R in Marinette County. There will be no in-person public meeting due to the current health emergency. We appreciate your input and encourage you take a moment to review the project information and provide comment.

Project location

US 141 from 0.14 miles south of County Z to 0.22 miles south of County R in the town of Beecher and Pembine, Marinette County, Wis.

Project need

The purpose of the project is to improve the deteriorating pavement and extend the service life of the roadway. There are numerous transverse and longitudinal cracking throughout the project. The purpose also includes addressing the deficient curb ramps in the town of Pembine that are non-ADA compliant.

Proposed improvements

WisDOT is proposing a resurfacing-level improvement on 3.69 miles of US 141 in the project limits.

Improvements include:

  • Milling 3 1/2” of the existing pavement and overlaying with 4 1/2” of asphaltic pavement
  • Adding shoulder aggregate
  • Beam guard replacement
  • Replacing curb ramps in Town of Pembine
  • Well abandonment
  • Clearing and grubbing in railroad vision corners
  • Centerline and shoulder rumble strips
  • Pavement marking
  • View proposed improvements in exhibit

Proposed schedule

  • Project design: Winter 2021- Winter 2022
  • Final Environmental Document: September 2021
  • Final Plans: February 2023
  • Construction currently scheduled: Summer/Fall 2023

Proposed traffic impacts

During construction, the roadway will be open to traffic. During construction, US 141 will be reduced to one lane of traffic using flagging operations. Work will also be completed using shoulder closures. During the curb ramp improvement work in the Town of Pembine, shoulder closures will be utilized, and a pedestrian detour will be provided. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained when no construction work is being done.

Real estate

Real estate will be acquired for improving the curb ramps in the town of Pembine, beam guard replacement, future access and maintenance along the west side of US 141 between County OO and Cemetery Road, and railroad crossing work at County OO and Sauld Street. A member of our real estate team will contact you if property is needed.

Future US 141 proposed projects

In This Together program for businesses

WisDOT recognizes businesses located in work zones have special needs. It’s critical that customers have access to businesses and that they continue to visit them, regardless of any road work inconvenience. WisDOT's In This Together program is offered to business and community leaders as an idea source as they plan for road construction in their area.

  • The website includes a specially designed Business Guide for businesses and community organizations to succeed during a highway construction project, includes information on:
    • Planning ahead
    • Staying informed
    • Keeping customers informed
    • Tips for businesses
  • Case studies that demonstrate techniques that have been successfully used in communities throughout Wisconsin.
  • Promotional samples showing a variety of examples of how businesses have promoted their businesses during construction.
  • View WisDOT's In This Together​ website

During construction, temporary signing for business will be available. While signing and other marketing/advertising during the construction is up to the business, WisDOT encourages businesses to use the resources above to assist them with planning for construction before the construction begins.
