Project location

WIS 162 (WIS 16 to WIS 71), Bangor - Four Corners, La Crosse and Monroe counties

Project overview

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is in the process of developing plans for a proposed project on WIS 162 between WIS 16 and WIS 71 in La Crosse and Monroe County. The project includes resurfacing with an asphalt overlay, pavement markings, and signing. This project also includes replacing beam guard (guard rail) that does not meet current design criteria. Beam guard will be replaced in the same location while extending the end terminals. The existing gravel shoulder will be paved to a width of 3-feet. This project will extend the life of the existing pavement and improve the safety for the users of this route.
