The project is designed to improve safety, operations and pavement conditions along WIS 16 (La Crosse Street) in the city of La Crosse. The project will construct two 11-foot driving lanes and a 12-foot wide center turning lane. The center turn lane will allow drivers to merge out of the driving lane before making left turns, reducing the number of rear end crashes. On-street bike accommodations will be added along with flashing beacon systems at two locations.
The rehabilitation will help update the existing facility and utilities, increase the longevity of the roadway and improve the safety for all roadway users. The design includes two 11-foot driving lanes and a 12-foot wide center turning lane.
