WIS 80 (Lemonweir River bridge to WIS 58), New Lisbon to Necedah - Juneau County

Project overview

The goal of the proposed project is to extend the pavement service life, improve driver safety, and ride comfort of 7.97 miles of WIS 80 from the Lemonweir River bridge in New Lisbon to WIS 58 in Necedah in Juneau County.

  • Resurface the roadway to extend its service life
  • Improve intersection of WIS 80 and the Shell/New Lisbon Travel Mart to improve safety


Traffic impacts/detours

WIS 80 will be closed and detoured between I-90 interchange and WIS 58, detour will utilize I-90 and WIS 58. WIS 80 will remain open between New Lisbon and I-90 interchange.
