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

Construction Update WIS 20

Hello,

 

Things are moving along on WIS 20. Now with County ES open, hopefully things are a little easier for everyone to get around – especially with all the events this weekend in East Troy.

 

Stage 3 Forecast: on/around June 5th

As of today, we are looking to move into stage 3 around June 5th. Stage 3 is where we move all the traffic to the new lanes we are currently building and start working on where traffic is now. The I-43 SB Entrance and the I-43 NB Exit ramps will re-open and we close the I-43 SB Exit and I-43 NB Entrance ramps. There will be new detours set up for the ramp closures.

 

The other change in Stage 3 is WIS 20 will be closed to local traffic only from County L in East Troy, to WIS 83 in Waterford. There will be hard closures of WIS 20 at the Walworth/Racine County Line due to the retaining wall construction along Honey Creek and the CN Railroad replacing their crossing on WIS 20.

 

Once into Stage 3, there will be no initial changes to access for County ES or County L. Both of those roads will have specific closures later this summer that will be similar to the south leg of County ES.

 

More details on the Stage 3 configuration will come out next week as we begin to finalize the dates.

 

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

Another project is slated to being west of East Troy that will detour traffic using WIS 20 – US 12 between Elkhorn and WIS 20. This new project cannot start until we move into Stage 3 on WIS 20 in East Troy as they need the I-43 ramps that are currently closed for their detour traffic.

 

Below is a link to the WisDOT page for that project with more information:
