WIS 114/55 - Calumet County

Resurfacing and Restoration Project

Project Overview

NOTICE: (Beginning Monday, July 18) WIS 114 closure from US 10 to WIS 55 scheduled for mid-July through mid-August.

Project location​​

WIS 114/55 from US 10 to the South Junction of WIS 114/WIS 55 in the villages of Harrison and Sherwood in Calumet County, Wis.

  • There are two project segments within the project limits, each identified by a unique project ID. Both projects will be constructed concurrently.

Schedule

Construction begins June 13, 2022. Work is expected to take 4 to 5 months for completion.

Project improvements

Each roadway section has various construction elements associated with each project. Both segment improvements are detailed below and can be viewed on project construction detail display maps below.

The proposed improvements for Project ID 4580-10-71 (red on map) include:

WIS 114/55 Project Segments
  • Mill/overlay of the existing asphaltic pavement, including at the roundabouts at County N/Fire Lane 13 and WIS 55/Stommel Road intersections with WIS 114.
  • At locations where concrete is directly under the asphalt, removal of existing deteriorated pavement, rubbilize the existing old concrete beneath the roadway to be utilized as a base, placement of a base aggregate layer above the rubbilized​ concrete, and placement of new asphaltic pavement on the newly constructed base.
  • Widening of the existing paved shoulders from 3 feet to 5 feet
  • Geometric roadway improvements at the State Park Road, Pigeon Road, and Castle Drive intersections with WIS 114:
    • Extension of the right turn lane from WIS 114 eastbound to State Park Road southbound.
    • Addition of a right turn lane from WIS 114 westbound to State Park Road northbound which will include a reconstruction of the northern half of the State Park Road intersection to accommodate the right turn lane.
    • Addition of a right turn island and bay from Pigeon Road northbound to WIS 114 eastbound to separate right turns at the intersection.
    • Addition of a right turn lane from WIS 114 eastbound to Castle Drive which will include reconstruction of the Castle Drive intersection to accommodate the right turn lane that will include a truck apron to accommodate semi-truck movements at the intersection.
  • Centerline and shoulder rumble strips
  • Miscellaneous curb and gutter repair
  • Pavement markings
  • Railroad crossing surface replacement

The proposed improvements for Project ID 4670-10-71 (blue on map) include:

  • Mill/overlay of the existing pavement
  • Curb ramp improvements to meet current ADA standards where possible
  • Miscellaneous curb and gutter repair
  • Shoulder rumble strips in rural areas
  • Pavement markings
  • Resurfacing of parking lanes
  • Base and subgrade repairs where needed
  • Frost heave repairs at two culverts at the south end of the project

Project benefits

The roadway pavement is at the end of its useful life. New pavement will provide a smoother ride for vehicles and decrease highway maintenance costs. New turn lanes and geometric improvements at intersections will provide safer turning and through movements at the intersections. Rumble strips will alert drivers to leaving the lane of travel.

Traffic impacts

The roadway will be constructed over a series of construction stages to minimize impacts to the travelling public. During construction portions of WIS 114/55 will be closed and detoured with the construction stages, as well as various other traffic impacts occurring throughout construction including single lane closures, flagging, and shoulder closures.

  • NOTE: Access to property owners and businesses along WIS 114/55 will be maintained at all times.
  • Road will be open during 4th of July Holiday

Construction stages (all dates tentative)

  • June/July : Consists of work primarily between the village of Sherwood and the WIS 55/WIS 114 roundabout (including the roundabout). During stage 2, motorists can expect single lane closures, flagging, and shoulder closures, with the following road closures/detours:
    • June 20 to July 1: A 1 to 2-week closure of WIS 114/WIS 55 from the village of Sherwood to the WIS 55/WIS 114/Stommel Road roundabout for railroad work just south of the WIS 55/WIS 114/Stommel Road roundabout.
    • Castle Drive will be closed at the WIS 114 intersection for reconstruction of the intersection. This closure will last approximately 3 weeks.
    • July 5 to July 15: A 1 to 2-week closure of the WIS 55/WIS 114/Stommel Road roundabout for resurfacing and other work at the roundabout.
  • July 18 to mid-August: Consists of work primarily north of the WIS 55/WIS 114/Stommel Road roundabout to just south of the interchange of US 10 and WIS 114.
    • WIS 114 will be closed to thru traffic and State Park Road and Pigeon Road intersections will be closed.
  • ​Mid-August: Consists of work primarily in the village of Sherwood. Motorists can expect single lane closures, flagging, and shoulder/parking lane closures, temporary pedestrian access rerouting/sidewalk detours along with the following road closures/detours:
    • A 2 to 3-week closure of WIS 114/WIS 55 for culvert, base/subgrade repair, and intersection work in the village of Sherwood is expected in mid-August.

Temporary business signing

Temporary business signing may be placed during the detoured portion of the project by filling out a WisDOT business signing permit. All temporary business signing needs approval via the permit before placement to ensure it is in a safe location and does not pose a visual distraction or traffic hazard. The temporary business signing permit is free. Costs associated with creating the temporary sign are the responsibility of the business. Please keep the following items in mind regarding business signing:

  • Temporary business signing cannot be placed on traffic control devices or state signs.
  • It is encouraged that businesses team up to have multiple businesses advertised on one sign structure versus several individual signs. This makes it easier for travelers to identify signs and find their destination.
  • The permit is available as a fillable-form WORD document (below) or you can request one from one of the project contacts listed below.

Project Onsite Construction Contact

A full time construction project engineer will be onsite. Please contact Josh with any construction-related questions. You can call or email Josh. You can also set up a time to visit
