WIS 54 Resurfacing - Brown County

​​​The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is seeking public feedback on the below design proposal for construction on WIS 54 in Brown County. The purpose of this outreach is to obtain your input on the identified needs and proposed improvements along WIS 54 between University Way and WIS 57 in Brown 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

  • ​WIS 54 between University Way and WIS 57 in the city of Green Bay, Brown County, Wis.

Project need

The purpose of the project is to improve the deteriorating pavement, extend the roadway’s service life and upgrade other roadway deficiencies. 

Proposed Improvements

WisDOT has created a public handout for the this project. Please feel free to download, print and share with anyone who does not have access to this website. The handout includes a prepaid mailer for public comments.


WisDOT is proposing a resurface-level improvement project on the 4.4 miles of WIS 54 between University Way and WIS 57. 

Improvements include:

  • Resurfacing mainline WIS 54 (concrete repair and overlay and asphalt mill and overlay)
  • Resurfacing ramps for University Avenue/Nicolet Drive and resurfacing mainline University Avenue/Nicolet Drive (concrete repair and overlay)
  • Concrete repair on Bay Settlement Road ramps
  • Replacing beam guard
  • Replacing curb ramps at southwest quadrant of Bay Settlement Road and Leon Bond Drive and intersection of eastbound off-ramp for Bay Settlement Road and Bay Settlement Road
  • Replacing culvert endwall
  • Pavement markings
  • Shoulder rumble strips
  • Shoulder aggregate
  • View project improvement display map

Schedule

Design is currently underway with final plans expected summer 2022. Construction is scheduled for spring/summer 2023. No real estate will be required for this project.

Traffic impacts

During mainline resurfacing, the roadway will be open to traffic. Motorists can expect to encounter lane closures and flagging operations. The ramps for University Avenue / Nicolet Drive and Bay Settlement Road will be closed for 3 days or less during resurfacing/repairing operations. Work on the ramps will be staggered between the two interchanges.

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. On the website, businesses can find:

  • Specially designed Business Coordination Guide for businesses 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.

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.
