WIS 50, Lake Lawn Drive to WIS 67, Walworth County
The project is planning to resurface WIS 50 from Lake Lawn Drive to WIS 67 in Walworth County. The improvement will address the deteriorating pavement conditions and improve traffic operations. The work will consist of:
- Removing existing pavement and placing new asphalt pavement on WIS 50.
- Removing existing pavement and placing new asphalt pavement on WIS 67 from Glenwood Drive to WIS 50.
- New pedestrian curb ramps installed at Bailey Road and WIS 67. New sidewalk installed along WIS 67 from Bailey Road to the north on the west side only.
- New traffic signals at Town Hall Road and at WIS 67.
- Cleaning storm water structures between County F and Inlet Shore Drive.
- Replace the guardrail on the northwest corner of the bridge over Jackson Creek.
- New pavement marking and signing.
- There will be some potential real estate needed for the signal work at Town Hall Road/South Shore Drive and for the curb ramps at Bailey Road.
Traffic control for the project will be determined later during preliminary design. Traffic control options to be evaluated are:
- Close roadway to through traffic with a posted detour on I-43 and WIS 67. Local traffic would be maintained for businesses and other destinations within the project limits.
- Keep roadway open and construct under live traffic with lane closures and flagging operations.
WisDOT public involvement activities are designed to effectively involve the public early and often in the process so that project decisions made are in the best overall interest. Below, you will find public outreach materials pertaining to this project. Anyone interested in the project is encouraged to review project details, ask questions, and provide comments that will assist WisDOT during the project’s design and construction.
** NEW ** Project Update - Spring 2022
WisDOT continues its ongoing design of the proposed WIS 50 resurfacing project between Lake Lawn Drive and WIS 67 in Walworth County.
As part of the project, the traffic signal at Town Hall Road will be replaced. The existing signal cabinet is located just off WisDOT right of way and along the outer boundary of Delavan Community Park. It is proposed the signal cabinet be replaced in its current location and a minor permanent limited easement be acquired. Delavan Community Park is a Section 4(f) resource. A Section 4(f) resource means it is publicly owned, open to the public, and its main purpose is a park or recreation area.
WisDOT is seeking public comments prior to making this change in plans. Please review the materials pertaining to the real estate acquisition below and provide comments by July 8, 2022. Comments can be sent to the contact listed below.
Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2026. If funding is available, the project could be advanced to 2025.
The project is in preliminary design -
