Project location

WIS 191 and WIS 39 Culvert Replacements, Iowa County

Project overview

The proposed project in Iowa County will replace six rectangular box culverts along WIS 191 between Dodgeville and Hollandale, and will replace two rectangular box culverts, extend one rectangular box culvert and place object marker signs on one rectangular box culvert along WIS 39 between Hollandale and WIS 78.

The proposed improvement is anticipated to be confined to the immediate area of each culvert and may include asphalt paving of the disturbed area to match the existing condition, grading, new guardrail, signs, and right-of-way acquisition, depending on location.  In addition, field entrances may be replaced, near existing locations, because of the culvert and grading work.
