WIS 76 work begins April 6 in Winnebago County
Highway to close starting April 13
(Vinland) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region office announces a reconstruction of WIS 76 in the towns of Vinland and Clayton from Greenhill Court (just north of I-41) to County JJ begins Monday, April 6, 2020. Work is scheduled to finish by the end of November 2020. WIS 76 will be closed and detoured to through traffic beginning on April 13, 2020.
James Peterson Son, Inc of Medford, WI is the prime contractor.
The roadway will be reconstructed with two, 12-foot wide travel lanes with five feet of paved shoulder width and 10-feet of total shoulder.
Other project improvements include:
Single lane roundabout at County GG intersection
Single lane roundabout at County G intersection
Multilane roundabout at County JJ intersection
Replacement of the existing two-way left-turn lane south of the County JJ intersection
Replacement of culvert pipes and the addition of storm sewer at the roundabouts
Curb and gutter and street lights will be installed at the roundabout intersections
A left-turn bypass lane will be constructed at the Vinland Center Road intersection
The roadway will be closed and detoured after the first week of construction. Local traffic access to property owners and businesses along WIS 76 will be maintained throughout the project.
County JJ and County GG roundabouts will be constructed first.
County G roundabout will be constructed after those are completed.
Staged construction of the County JJ roundabout will allow cross traffic to be maintained at the County JJ intersection for the majority of construction. Cross traffic will be maintained at the County GG and County G intersections except when constructing roundabouts.
WIS 76 mainline work will be concurrent with intersection work.
o WIS 76 will be CLOSED to through traffic beginning on April 13, 2020.
o Detour will use I-41, US 45 and US 10.
This project is needed to improve roadway deficiencies, safety and operational efficiency. The existing pavement is asphalt over original concrete and is in poor condition. Safety improvements and intersection reconstruction is needed due to forecasted growth in traffic volumes.
