US 12 (East Monroe County Line to 225 ft East of A Street), Camp Douglas to New Lisbon - Juneau County

Project overview

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) plans to improve this 7.85 mile section of US 12 from Camp Douglas to New Lisbon by resurfacing the existing asphalt pavement. The existing pavement is deteriorating, and this treatment is needed to extend the pavement service life.

Proposed improvements:
  • Pavement resurfacing (remove top 2 inches then replace with 2 inches of Asphaltic Pavement Overlay)
  • Updating guardrails
  • Updating curb ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements
  • Increase paved shoulder width from 3’ to 5’
    • Install shoulder rumble strips​

  • Construction scheduled for 2026, with potential advancement to 2022

Traffic impacts/detours

US 12 will remain open to through traffic.
