Work will include:

  • Mill and overlay WIS 27 from West Carol Drive to S. Michigan Avenue.
  • Replace pavement and widen WIS 27 from S. Michigan Avenue to Railroad Street.
  • Realign County Highway B at the intersection of WIS 27.
  • Overlay the structure over the Namekagon River.
  • Install traffic signals at WIS 27 and Railroad Street and WIS 27 and County Highway B intersections.
  • Install storm sewer between S. Michigan Avenue and Railroad Street.
An environmental document will be prepared to assess the impacts to various environmental factors within the project limits. Coordination with staff from the Department of Natural Resources has been initiated and will continue throughout the design phase of the project. 

Proposed Traffic Impacts

Construction is currently scheduled to occur in the summer of 2019. 

During construction, WIS 27 will remain open to traffic at all times, however, traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction. County Highway B may need to be closed for a portion of the construction with a detour route in place utilizing WIS 77 and County Highway K. Flaggers may also be utilized during construction. 

Access to businesses and residences within the construction area will be maintained, which may involve the use of temporary driveways and gravel surfaces. Field representatives will contact homeowners and businesses in advance before closing a roadway.
