Project overview

​The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) plans to recondition this 15.56-mile stretch of WIS 27.

Additional improvements include:

  • Increasing paved shoulder width from 3' to 6.'​ This added pavement width will not extend beyond the existing​ gravel shoulder.
  • Adding centerline and shoulder rumble strips.
