WIS 75 Resurfacing (WIS 50 to WIS 20) – Kenosha & Racine Counties


WIS 75 (WIS 50 - WIS 20) in Paddock Lake, Kenosha and Racine counties​.




The purpose of the proposed project is to address the deteriorating pavement condition and the decreased ride quality along WIS 75. In addition, a Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) project was added to address crash issues at the intersection of WIS 75 and County A (Plank Road). Addressing non-American Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian ramps in the village of Paddock Lake is proposed, as well as addressing non-standard culverts and beam guard at multiple locations.

Proposed Improvements

  • ​Mill 2.5-inches of the existing asphaltic pavement and overlay with 4.5-inches of asphaltic pavement.
  • Roundabout at the intersection of WIS 75 with County A (Plank Road).
  • Replenish shoulder gravel in the rural section of the project.
  • Replace and extend culverts and beam guard at C-51-0039 & C-51-0042 structures.
  • Install new pavement marking and signing.
  • Install centerline and shoulder rumble strips in the rural segments from WIS 50 to WIS 11 as a preventative safety measure.
  • Upgrade curb ramp within the village of Paddock Lake​ to meet ADA compliance.

Traffic Impacts

​WIS 75 is proposed to be closed during construction from WIS 50 to WIS 20 with traffic shifted to a detour route utilizing WIS 50, US 45, and WIS 20. Local and emergency access will be maintained during construction.
