WIS 35, Genoa to Stoddard, Vernon County

Project overview

This project begins 0.1 miles south of the intersection of WIS 35/WIS 56 in the village of Genoa, Vernon County and extends north approximately 6.8 miles to the north village limits of Stoddard. Work will consist of a pavement resurfacing in the rural portion of the project, including 4 bridge structure replacements, and a complete urban reconstruction within the village limits of Stoddard, where the water main, sanitary sewer and storm sewer will be replaced. The entire roadway will be replaced with an asphaltic pavement.
