WIS 22 (WIS 16 to Columbia/Marquette County Line), Wyocena to Montello - Columbia County
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is developing final plans for a pavement replacement project on WIS 22 in Columbia County. The 11.5 mile project is located between the WIS 16 interchange and the Columbia/Marquette County Line in the Town of Marcellon.
- Removing 2 inches of the existing surface and overlaying with 4 inches of asphalt.
- Proposed plan consists of one 12-foot traffic lane in each direction with a 6-foot-wide shoulder (5-foot paved) on the left and right-hand sides.
- North of WIS 33 the shoulder will be 6 feet wide and the whole width paved for Amish accommodations on left and right-sides.
- South of WIS 33 the shoulder will be 6 feet wide, but only 5 feet will be paved on both sides.
- The box culvert bridge over the Fox River on the north side of Pardeeville will be reconstructed.
- Sidewalk curb ramps in Wyocena and Pardeeville will also be reconstructed to meet ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards.
Additional WIS 22 roadway improvements include the following:
- Replacement of existing guardrails and installing break away ends (if a vehicle hits the front of the guard rail, it will break away and fold up to slow down vehicle).
- Protection of existing roadside hazards within the roadway clear zone (area on each side that could be run over if a vehicle accidently goes off the road).
- For example: fixed objects, steep slopes, and non-traversable slopes
- Replacement, rehabilitation and extension of select culvert pipes.
- Replacement of existing signing and pavement markings.
- Replacing existing flashing beacons at the WIS 22 / WIS 33 intersection.
- 2020 - Construction anticipated
