WIS 181 Resurfacing - Ozaukee County

Project Location

WIS 181 - from County Road C to WIS 60, near the city of Cedarburg


The purpose of this project is to improve the pavement surface and ridability ​along WIS 181, from County Road C (Pioneer Road) to WIS 60. The existing asphaltic concrete pavement is in need of repair as there are areas of cracking and joint deterioration.​ This project will resurface approximately three miles of roadway, and will also rehabilitate drainage structures and replace guardrail within the project limits.


Construction is scheduled for summer of 2022.

Traffic Impacts​​

During construction, traffic on WIS 181 will be closed to through traffic in segments within the project limits. Access to any businesses or residences along WIS 181 will be maintained at all times during construction, and corresponding detours will be posted.

A determination as to the timeframes for each segmental closure has yet to be determined, but the goal is to construct the entire project while school is out of session.
