Project location

WIS 26 (WIS 33 to South of Milligan Road), Oak Grove, Burnett and Chester - Dodge County

Project overview

WisDOT is in the process of developing plans to resurface the nearly 11-mile section of WIS 26 between WIS 33 and just south of Milligan Road to improve the pavement surface.

Improvements include:

  • Mill and overlay the existing asphalt pavement
  • Increase the paved shoulder width from three feet to five feet with the use of Highway Safety Improvement Funding
  • Replace existing guardrail near the Mill Creek and Plum Creek crossings
  • Replace deteriorated roadway cross culverts
  • Install centerline and shoulder rumble strips
  • Railroad crossing improvements


February 2022 - Public Involvement Meeting

Spring/Summer 2024 - Construction anticipated

Traffic impacts/detours

Through traffic will be detoured via WIS 26, WIS 33, and US 151 during culvert pipe replacements and railroad crossing improvements. Single-lane closures and flagging operations will occur during the resurfacing of WIS 26
