Project location

WIS 60 (Kickapoo River Bridge to US 61), Bridgeport - Crawford County

Project overview

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) plans to resurface this 8.33-mile stretch of WIS 60. This project is needed to treat existing pavement distresses and is part of WisDOT's Highway Safety Improvement Program. The intent of this project is to extend the pavement's service life and decrease the potential for crossing centerline and roadway departure crashes along this corridor.

Additional improvements include:

  • Milling and removing 2 ½ inches of existing asphalt pavement.
  • Increasing shoulder width to 6 feet (5 feet paved, 1 foot aggregate.) This work will not extend beyond the existing gravel shoulder except as specified below.
  • Adding centerline and shoulder rumble strips.
  • Potential upgrades to existing guardrail and cross culverts. Work (if performed) in these areas may extend beyond the existing roadway width, but will not exceed the existing right-of-way.
  • Paving 3 inches of new asphalt pavement.
