US 12 (WIS 25 and Pine Avenue East), city of Menomonie - Dunn County


The project is located on ;​US 12 at the intersection of WIS 25 and Pine Avenue East in the Dunn County city of Menomonie.


The current intersection configuration has negative offset left-turn lanes that contribute to a pattern of high crash rates as drivers making opposing left turns are unable to adequately see around each other as opposing left-turning vehicles obstruct the visibility of oncoming cars. To address this, WisDOT is proposing to:

  • ​Realign the north- and southbound left-turn lanes on WIS 25 to create a positive offset.
  • Realign the east- and westbound left-turn lanes on US 12 and Pine Avenue East to create a neutral offset.
  • Realign the eastbound right-turn lane on US 12 to improve the viewing angle for drivers.
  • Improve existing pedestrian curb ramps.
  • Install monotube traffic signal equipment at the intersection to increase signal head visibility.
  • Construct a raised median along US 12 and place new concrete pavement.
  • Replace the concrete on US 12 on the west leg of the intersection.
  • Mill and overlay Pine Avenue East on the east leg of the intersection.
  • Place permanent signage and new pavement markings.​
