WIS 190 (Capitol Drive) Improvements - Waukesha County



This project will include improvements to approximately 1.7 miles of WIS 190 (Capitol Drive) in the Village and City of Pewaukee. The purpose of the project is to address the deteriorating pavement conditions and decreased ride quality along WIS 190, as well as to address outdated traffic signal equipment.

Proposed Project Details:

A combination of replacing the deteriorated concrete pavement section and resurfacing the asphalt pavement section will be used to restore the road's structural integrity and extend its life cycle. The proposed improvements include the following:

  • Replace the concrete pavement structure from approximately 350 feet west of WIS 16 to approximately 750 feet west of the Forest​ Grove Drive / George Towne Drive intersection.
  • Resurface the asphalt pavement from approximately 750 feet west of the Forest Grove Drive / George Towne Drive intersection to approximately 1,500 feet east of Five Fields Road.
  • Add traffic signals and improve the WIS 16 westbound off-ramp intersection.
  • Replace traffic signals at the five (5) existing signalized intersections within the project limits.
  • Upgrade curb ramps to meet current ADA standards

Traffic Impacts:

WIS 190 (Capitol Drive) will remain open to a single lane in each direction during construction. Short-term closures of the WIS 16 ramps are anticipated. Access to local businesses and property owners will be maintained.
