Project location

WIS 28 (Ellsworth St to North Junction County TW), Horicon - Dodge County

Project overview

The 3.46-mile project will mill and resurface 3 ½ inches of deteriorating pavement on WIS 28 from Ellsworth Street (in the City of Horicon) to the North Junction County TW (in the Town of Williamstown), Dodge County. Project work will also include replacement of the existing guardrail just southwest of the WIS 28/Schwarze Road intersection, new rumble strips, and new pavement marking. Prior to this construction project, Dodge County is being provided a Local Force Account (LFA) to conduct in-kind replacement of several culvert pipes one year prior to this project to ensure natural settlement has taken place preventing subsidence of the roadway after the mill and overlay.
