Construction to start on WIS 83 in Hartford
Residents encouraged to attend open house on reconstruction project


March 7, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Region is scheduled to begin work on WIS 83 from East Monroe Avenue to West Sumner Street (WIS 60). The project is anticipated to begin in late March and be completed this fall.
All persons interested in the WIS 83 project are encouraged to attend an open-house meeting on Monday, March 14, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the First National Bank of Harford (Community Room), 116 West Sumner Street, Hartford, Wisconsin.
Zignego Company has been awarded the $4.3 million contract to construct the improvements. Project plans, detour routes and other exhibits will be on display to illustrate the work in detail. No formal presentations are scheduled.
The work includes reconstructing the existing pavement with new concrete pavement. Additional improvements include safety enhancements at the intersections, additional turn lanes with signal upgrades at the East Monroe Ave. and WIS 83 Intersection, spot sanitary and water improvements, existing curb and gutter and sidewalk replacement, and decorative lighting in the downtown Hartford central business district (south of WIS 60).
Portions of WIS 83 will be closed long-term for construction. A signed detour will be provided.
