Traffic Impacts

WIS 23 will be open to traffic throughout the majority of construction. Single-lane closures will be used for WIS 23 Eastbound traffic and for WIS 23 Westbound traffic, during concrete repair work, asphalt milling and asphalt paving. Also, temporary lane closures and access restrictions will occur on Sunset Road and County TT during construction. Access will be maintained for all residents and businesses.

Right of Way Needs

Real estate is anticipated for intersection improvements at Sunset Road and County TT.

In This Together Program for Businesses

WisDOT recognizes businesses located in work zones have special needs. It is critical that customers have access to businesses, and 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. On the In This Together website, businesses can find the following:

  • Specially designed business coordination guide for businesses to succeed during a highway construction project, including information on:
    • Planning ahead
    • Staying informed
    • Keeping customers informed
    • Tips for businesses
  • Case studies that demonstrate techniques that have been successfully used in the communities throughout Wisconsin
  • Promotional samples showing a variety of examples of how businesses have promoted their businesses during construction

During any short-term detours, businesses impacted will also have the opportunity for temporary business signing.
