WIS 46 Resurfacing

​Location

WIS 46 & Keller Avenue, Snow Street to York Park Entrance, City of Amery, Polk County

Overview

The project involves a three-lane conversion on WIS 46, reducing the number of traffic lanes to one lane on each side with a two-way left turn lane (TWLTL) in the center. This conversion will be accomplished during highway resurfacing; as a new layer of asphalt is added, construction crews will re-paint the highway with new lane markings. Additionally, curb ramps will be replaced throughout the project to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The project is anticipated to cost between $1.1 to $1.4 million.

Schedule

Construction is scheduled for the 2020 construction year.
