Project location

WIS 35 (Old Highway 35 to WIS 56), Ferryville to Genoa – Crawford and Vernon Counties

Project overview

This section of WIS 35 was last paved in 1993 and had a seal coat placed in 2000. The existing pavement is aged and in extremely poor condition with extensive cracking and crumbling. The proposed improvement is to replace the pavement and guardrails.

The project is needed to improve the pavement and extend its useful life. The proposed improvement is to either mill and overlay the existing pavement or cold in-place recycle the pavement. It will also replace the guardrail as needed. Deteriorated pipes will also be replaced.
