Project overview

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is proposing to resurface a section of WIS 26 between 0.2 miles south of Milligan Road in the Town of Chester and Doty Street within the City of Waupun.

The following needs have been identified on this section of WIS 26:

  • The existing curb ramps do not meet current ADA standards and will be updated
  • The existing light poles within the WIS 26 raised median at the intersection at Shaler Drive do not meet standards and will require relocation

Improvements include:

  • Resurfacing of the existing pavement
  • Upgrading curb ramps to ADA standards
  • Relocation of light poles
  • Patching the concrete base at the WIS 26 underpass
  • New guardrail


  • August 15, 2023 - Public Involvement Meeting
