WIS 120 Resurfacing Project - Walworth County


​WIS 120, from WIS 36 to O'Leary Lane, in Walworth County.


​The purpose of the proposed project is to improve the pavement surface along WIS 120 to extend its service life. The project would mill off and remove the top 3.5 inches of the existing pavement, and overlay the pavement with 3.5 inches of new asphalt from WIS 36 to I-43. From I-43 to O'Leary Lane, the existing concrete pavement would be spot repaired. Additionally, the following improvements are being evaluated to include as part of the project:​

  • Replacement of the existing guardrail.
  • Reconstruction of the northbound right-turn lane at WIS 36 to provide bicycle accommodations northbound on WIS 120.
  • Investigation of bicycle accommodations between WIS 36 and the White River Trail. In order to include bicycle accommodations without roadway widening,​ the alternatives evaluated may include the reduction or elimination of on-road parking on WIS 120.
  • Curb ramp improvements in Springfield, including the WIS 36 intersection.
  • Potential permanent snow fence locations along the west side of WIS 120, from south of Prairie Road to WIS 11.
  • Rehabilitation or replacement of the Lannon Stone retaining wall located about 500 feet south of Sw​oboda Road.
  • Rehabilitation of the I-43 bridges over WIS 120, including girder repairs, bearing replacements, and concrete surface repairs.
  • Potential inclusion of a village of East Troy multi-use path project from Honey Creek Road to Honey Creek.​​​​

Traffic Impacts

WIS 120 is anticipated to be open during construction through the use of flagging operations; however, short-term closures of the I-43 interchange may be needed to facilitate pavement repairs and bridge work.


​​​​Design of the project is scheduled to be completed in early 2023, with construction scheduled as early as 2023, pending funding.
