WIS 59 Whitewater

Walworth County

Construction Stages

To best serve the businesses and residents in the area according to their needs, this project will be broken up into various construction stages over the next two years.

What to Expect

Construction will include three stages. During each stage of construction, WIS 59 will be detoured for the section of roadway under construction. Access to adjacent businesses and properties will be maintained during construction.

Stage 1 – Newcomb Street to 100’ west of Taft Street      (Spring 2019 to Summer 2019)
Stage 2 – 100’ west of Taft Street to Clay Street                (Summer 2019 to late Fall 2019)
Stage 3 – Clay Street to US 12                                                (Spring 2020 to Summer 2020)

Local traffic looking to access businesses and properties along the project can expect to encounter flagging operations, temporary road closures, and temporary driveway closures. These will be necessary during parts of the construction process. WisDOT will contact homeowners and businesses in advance before closing a driveway.
