TORNADO WARNING WALWORTH COUNTY:

WIS 20 Weekly Construction Update 04/24/2024

** Please note Closure Date CHANGE Below**

 

Hello,

 

With the weather forecast for Friday-Sunday, we are moving the planned 21-Day closure of the south leg of County ES to Wednesday, May 1st instead of Monday. See attached for an updated flyer with details. The message boards will be updated tonight or tomorrow morning to reflect the new date.

 

Besides the weather, the other issue we are running into is the material under the old WIS 20 roadway isn’t great, and we are needing to remove more than what was originally planned. (See Attached Photos). Losing the ability to work this Saturday due to weather limited the option to make up some lost production due to the poor soils.  

 

Traffic:

  1. Access to Dollar General is available by using the median opening by McDonald’s/Shell and using the WIS 20 EB lanes to get to their driveway.
  2. During the County ES closure, WIS 20 will remain open for access.

 

This Week:

  1. Continue road excavation and rock placement. Slow going for now and working directly under the I-43 bridges (equipment can’t move as easily) will also affect the operations.

 

Next Week:

  1. Finish roadway excavation and stone placement.
  2. Begin County ES south leg closure – removals, storm sewer, roadway excavation, rock placement

 

Future Work (2 weeks+)

  1. Continue work inside the County ES Closure. Expected to reopen prior to May 23rd and Memorial Day weekend.

 

WisDOT has a project website set up for information that is more general than this email but could be useful if needed. https://projects.511wi.gov/20wal/

 

If you have any other questions or comment, please continue to reach out.

 

Thanks,
