Project location

US 12 (Arrowhead Road to County J), between Mauston & Wisconsin Dells – Juneau County

Project overview

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is in the process of developing plans for a proposed safety improvement project on US 12 between Mauston and Wisconsin Dells in Juneau County. The project limits are from approximately 1000 feet north west of Arrowhead Road to County J. The current proposal will add curb and gutter, sidewalks, a marked crosswalk, storm sewer and street lighting along US 12. The posted speed limit will also be reduced from 55 mph to 40 mph. The purpose of the new safety features is to reduce the number and severity of incidents between pedestrians and vehicles.


  • 2020 - Construction anticipated

Traffic impacts/detours

US 12 is currently proposed to be built using flagging operations and temporary lane closures. No detours are planned during construction.
