Detours & Road Construction Update:

Wednesday, April 16th

Work in progress  Lunda Construction (bridge contractor) has completed the piling in the median and half of the north abutment.  Work will continue in the median which includes placing forms, rebar and concrete for the pier footing.  Concrete trucks will utilize an inside lane closure to deliver and unload the concrete.  Concrete pours are scheduled starting Monday, April 21st.

James Peterson Sons have finalized the earthwork plan using material from the right-of-way at County K and US 41 interchange.  This area is where the new alignment of US 41 was relocated to the east and old 41 became Addison Road south of the County K interchange.  The trucks hauling the fill will enter and exit off of Addison Road.  In the upcoming days they will place erosion control devices and begin stripping the topsoil.  The use of available D.O.T. owned dirt on this site, allows Peterson to submit a cost savings to the project.

Clearing and grubbing of trees was scheduled to begin this week, however, with the rain/snow mix and more to come, they were unable to access the areas required to be clear cut.  They have been rescheduled for next week.  Once the trees are cut and erosion control devices installed, Peterson can begin the earthwork on the temporary widening on WIS 144.

Ramp closure schedule   The northbound on ramp is scheduled to close on Friday, April 25th at 6:00 a.m.  Signs will be posted on the ramp on Friday, April 18th, announcing the upcoming closure date.  By contract, a seven day notification is required to be posted.  This is the only ramp being closed at this time.

Closing the northbound on ramp allows Peterson to construct the new on ramp and place the fill needed to construct the north bridge abutment.  The detour route will be WIS 144 south to WIS 60 east to US 41.  The detour route is posted for statewide thru traffic while locals may find other shortcuts.

Utility relocations will be completed by the end of April.  The overhead line crossing US 41 will be removed at night with aid from State Patrol.

Mailboxes within the project limits were required to be moved by last week.  Please contact your postmaster for direction on relocation.  It is the property owners responsibility to move.  Please do your part in keeping this project on time.

Jeanne A. Marchant, Project Leader
