Project location

WIS 83 (Kickapoo River to WIS 33), La Farge to Hillsboro - Vernon County

Project overview

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is developing a pavement replacement and resurfacing project to improve approximately 16 miles of WIS 82 in the Village of La Farge, Town of Forest, Town of Hillsboro, Town of Stark, and Town of Union in Vernon County. The project extends from the Kickapoo River to WIS 33.

Proposed improvements include:

  • Pavement replacement and resurfacing
  • Concrete deck overlay
  • Replace or adjust guardrail to meet current standards
  • Upgrade various curb ramps in the Village of La Farge to meet ADA requirements
  • One culvert replacement


Traffic impacts/detours

Most work will be completed under single lane closures with flagging, except for the following:

  • The replacement of the culvert just east of Maple Street in the Village of La Farge will require a full closure of WIS 82 – traffic would be detoured from WIS 131 to WIS 56 to WIS 80 to return to WIS 33.
  • The deck overlay on the bridge over the Kickapoo River just west of the Village of La Farge will utilize temporary traffic signals and a one-lane roadway to maintain traffic on WIS 82.
