    • View detour map
  • Local traffic access to property owners and businesses along WIS 96 will be maintained throughout the project.

The existing pavement is deteriorating. This is a reconstruction-level improvement with complete replacement of pavement and subgrade. Construction includes:

  • Reconstruction of the existing roadway
    • Replacement of the existing concrete pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalks and storm sewer
  • Creation of on-street bicycle accommodations
  • Correction of substandard intersection angles at Washington Street and Grant Street/Plank Road
  • Installation of a new lighting system

New roadway section

The new highway section will consist of a 44-foot wide urban roadway with one lane of traffic in each direction. This section will include a bike lane on both the north and south sides of the street as well as a parking lane on the south side. Terrace widths will be increased to 4 feet and the sidewalk width will be 5 feet. The proposed right-of-way limits will vary beyond the back of the sidewalk.

Business signing during detour
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.

Temporary Business Sign permits are available as a fillable-form WORD download (above) or you can request one from WisDOT Project Manager Tim Rank, P.E., by calling (920) 360-2579 or email Tim.rank@dot.wi.gov.
