STH 69 Construction Project Update 7/13/23

Work in the reconstruction continues (Richard Street to Paoli):

  • Grading operations
  • Roadway aggregates
  • Salvaged topsoil, landscaping
  • Concrete curb and gutter is anticipated in late July/early August
  • Asphalt paving anticipated to begin in mid-August
  • The construction zone is filled with materials, equipment and contractors working and moving in multiple directions throughout the stretch of roadway. The travel way may be narrow, bumpy, dusty or muddy.
  • Anticipated completion is early October

REMINDER HWY 69 is closed to thru traffic.  Access is allowed only for HWY 69 residents and businesses who have an origin or destination on the project. Travel through the construction zone is not permitted except for school busses and emergency personnel. If your destination is within the construction zone, it is recommended to use your closest access to STH 69 to get to a driveway. Large trucks need to use appropriate truck routes. Please slow down, obey any flagging operations, and stop for all construction equipment, as they have the right-of-way.

A signed detour route is posted and follows WIS 92, WIS 78 and US 18/151.
