Traffic impacts

WIS 67 will be closed and detoured to thru traffic for work on the Mullet River bridge north of WIS 23 and on the Muehl Springs box culvert between County MM and Holzman Road. Work on the structures will take place simultaneously and utilize two detour routes. Access will be maintained to properties and businesses in the detoured portion of WIS 67.

    • Monday, Sept. 13 to early October 2021 (15 working days): WIS 67 will be CLOSED and DETOURED to through traffic beginning Monday, Sept. 13, 2021 from WIS 23 in the city of Plymouth to County EH in the city of Kiel. Access will be maintained to businesses and property owners in the work zone.
    • Early October 2021 (15 working days): WIS 67 will be CLOSED and DETOURED to through traffic from County A to County EH. Access will be maintained to businesses and property owners in the work zone.
  • WIS 67 will remain open with flagging operations and lane closures for asphalt resurfacing and work following the full closures.
    • Contractor will contact homeowners and businesses in advance before reconstructing a driveway. Business driveways will be constructed in stages to allow access throughout construction.
  • WIS 67 concrete replacement near WIS 23 will be conducted in halves. Traffic will be switched to the opposite side of the road while the other direction is paved (complete).
  • WIS 23 ramps will be closed for a maximum of 5 continuous working days for concrete work (complete).

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. Business signs attached to these devices will be removed.
  • 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 Brooks Fechhelm, Project Engineer, (920) 492-0597 or email bfechhelm@correinc.com.

In This Together Business Resource

WisDOT recognizes businesses located in work zones have special needs. While signing and other marketing/advertising during the construction is up to the business, WisDOT has business resources available through its “In This Together” website to assist businesses with planning for construction closures and to minimize the impact of construction. For more information, please visit WisDOT’s In This Together website at https://wisconsindot.gov/together.
