**BEACH ROAD CLOSED**: Beach Road is CLOSED from Ravine Drive to East Shore due to Down Powerlines

WIS 20 Weekly Construction Update 05/17/2024



Thankfully, we had a very productive week without rain messing things up!


Starting with WIS 20/County ES – all the asphalt pavement is completed, and pavement marking is scheduled for Monday. If we can get those markings installed before any rain hits, we would likely be re-opening the intersection over night so Tuesday morning it would be functional again. I will send out a special notice on Monday when we have the confirmed details so everyone will know the schedule. I know it’s been a pain for most/all the locals and traffic, but the end is hopefully in sight now.


More good news to the east, WIS 83 is mostly completed and waiting on shouldering and some sign replacements. The asphalt was paved on Monday and pavement markings installed on Wed/Thursday. The crew that would perform the shouldering is at the WIS 20/County ES area trying to button-up their operations before we re-open. My intention is to have all our traffic control drums/signs removed on WIS 83 prior to Memorial Day weekend.


Information on the other WisDOT project up on I-43 from US 12 to WIS 83 is below:
