WIS 76 - Winnebago

I-41 to County JJ

Construction Staging/Schedule

ALL ROADWAYS ARE OPEN AS OF FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 16, 2020. PROJECT COMPLETE. WEBSITE FOR REFERENCE ONLY.

Construction staging and associated traffic impacts

  • Construction Start – April 6, 2020; Construction End – October 16, 2020
  • County JJ and County GG roundabouts will be constructed first.
  • County G roundabout will be constructed after those are completed.
    • (Update) County G will be closed July 6 for construction.
  • Staged construction of the County JJ roundabout will allow cross traffic to be maintained at the County JJ intersection for the majority of construction.
  • Southbound WIS 76 will not be able to access County JJ / Breezewood Lane starting July 6, 2020. County JJ will remain open to traffic.
  • Cross traffic will be maintained at the County GG and County G intersections except during restricted time windows when one of the two intersections will be closed for construction.
  • WIS 76 mainline work will be concurrent with intersection work.
    • WIS 76 will be CLOSED to through traffic for all but the first two weeks of work.
    • Detour will use I-41, US 45 and US 10.

There are six overall stages within the project. Each stage is detailed in a pdf map diagram and in text below. To view traffic flow, open the map and use the ‘zoom’ function to view the arrows on each map.

  • Stages 1 & 2 involve work at the County JJ and County GG intersections.
  • Stages 3, 4 & 6 involve work on mainline WIS 76.
  • Stage 5 involves work at the County G intersection.
    • Complete Stage 1 prior to beginning any other stage.
    • Complete Stage 2 prior to beginning Stage 5.

Stage 1A – County JJ intersection (roughly 2 weeks):

View Stage 1A map

  • Construction work includes installing the temporary bypass lane, temporary pavement widening at the County JJ intersection, some storm sewer work, and temporary pipes and pipe extensions. Traffic impacts include:
    • WIS 76 and all side roads will remain OPEN to traffic.
    • Single lane closure with a flagger on Breezewood Lane to complete the pavement widening on the south side of the road.
    • Traffic shifts along WIS 76 (north of the County JJ intersection) and along Breezewood Lane/County JJ as shown in the traffic control staging plan 1A.

Stage 1B – County JJ intersection (roughly 1 week):

View Stage 1B map

  • Construction work includes excavation of the contaminated soil at the County JJ intersection. Traffic impacts include:
    • WIS 76 CLOSED on north leg of the County JJ intersection.
    • Side roads and other intersections OPEN.

Stage 2 – County GG (about 2.5 months) & County JJ intersections (about 4 months):

View Stage 2 map – See Stage 2 sub-stages (below) for detailed breakdown of construction/traffic impacts.

  • Construction work includes completion of County GG and County JJ roundabouts, including upper layer asphalt pavement, storm sewer, street lighting, signing, and pavement marking. Traffic impacts include:
    • WIS 76 CLOSED to through traffic south of the County JJ intersection to the south project limits.
    • County GG intersection CLOSED until the roundabout has been completed.
    • County G intersection OPEN to through traffic on County G
  • Stage 2A – County JJ intersection (roughly 2 months):
  • View Stage 2A map
    • Construction work includes the eastbound and southbound lanes at the County JJ intersection including the sign structures, some light poles, and the majority of the storm sewer. Traffic impacts include:
      • Shift traffic to the bypass lanes at the County JJ intersection and utilize a 3-way stop condition once the signals have been removed.
      • WIS 76 CLOSED to through traffic south of the County JJ intersection to the south project limits.
      • County G intersection OPEN to through traffic on County G
  • Stage 2B – County JJ intersection (roughly 3-4 weeks):
  • View Stage 2B map
    • Construction work includes the westbound and northbound lanes at the County JJ intersection. Traffic impacts include:
      • Traffic will use the northbound and westbound bypass lanes at the County JJ intersection. Southbound and eastbound traffic will move to the newly constructed lanes.
      • WIS 76 CLOSED to through traffic south of the County JJ intersection to the south project limits.
      • County G intersection OPEN to through traffic on County G
  • Stage 2C – County JJ intersection (roughly 3-4 weeks):
  • View Stage 2C map
    • Construction work includes the remaining section of the center circle and the remaining portion of the northbound and southbound lanes just north of the center circle. The remaining light poles at the intersection will also be installed. Traffic impacts include:
      • Eastbound and westbound traffic at the County JJ intersection will be shifted to the newly constructed lanes.
      • North leg of the County JJ intersection CLOSED.
      • WIS 76 CLOSED to through traffic south of the County JJ intersection to the south project limits.
      • County G intersection OPEN to through traffic on County G.
  • Stage 2D – County JJ intersection (3 calendar days from a Friday morning to Sunday evening – exact dates TBD):
  • View Stage 2D map
    • Construction work includes the upper layer of asphalt pavement at the entire intersection and final pavement marking.
      • Close all legs of the County JJ intersection.
      • WIS 76 CLOSED to through traffic south of the County JJ intersection to the south project limits.
      • County G intersection OPEN to through traffic on County G.

Stage 5 – County G intersection (roughly 2.5 months):

View Stage 5 map

  • Construction includes complete reconstruction of the County G intersection.
    • County G intersection CLOSED.
    • WIS 76 CLOSED to through traffic south of the County JJ intersection to the south project limits.
    • County GG and JJ intersections OPEN to through traffic traveling on County GG and County JJ.

Stages 3, 4, and 6 – WIS 76 mainline construction

These stages will be ongoing throughout the other stages of the project.

  • Stage 3: Reconstruction of WIS 76 from south project limits – County GG.
  • Stage 4: Reconstruction of WIS 76 from County GG – County G.
  • Stage 6: Reconstruction of WIS 76 from County G – County JJ.
