The purpose of this resurfacing project is to improve the pavement surface along WIS 50 from US 12 to County O (Grand Geneva Way to 368th Avenue) in Walworth and Kenosha counties. The current asphaltic pavement was originally constructed in 1999, is experiencing longitudinal cracking, and requires a new riding surface. No major maintenance or overlays have been performed on the original pavement since its initial construction.
No changes to the number of lanes or existing geometry are proposed, and no right of way acquisition is anticipated for this project.
Construction is currently scheduled for 2022, but could be advanced to as early as 2021 pending funding.
WIS 50 will be open to traffic during construction with one lane closed at all times.
