  • Widen the shoulders to standard width on WIS 119 eastbound off-ramp.
  • Milling, patching, and overlaying the WIS 119 westbound on-ramp with asphalt.
  • Replacing pedestrian ramps to meet current ADA Standards.
  • Replacing guardrail​.

Traffic Impacts

  • Traffic management alternatives such as short/long term closures, detours, staging, off-peak/nighttime closures, or a combination of approaches are currently being evaluated.
  • ​Access for residents, businesses, and emergency services will be coordinated and maintained during construction.
