Feb. 26, 2013

Crews are preparing to roll out the orange barrels on a $6.2 million project on WIS 33 between US 41 and County Z in Washington County starting in mid-March announced the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT).

The public is invited to a construction kick-off meeting on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 between 4 and 7 p.m. at the Addison Town Hall, 127 First Street in Allenton, WI.  The meeting will be an open house format. The meeting site is wheelchair accessible. If you are hearing impaired and require an interpreter, please request one using the Telecommunications Relay System (dial 711).

A presentation will be given at 6 p.m. detailing the construction schedule and stages.  Members from the WisDOT project team will be on hand to answer additional questions.

The 4.6 mile project is divided into two segments:

Resurfacing - Starting at US 41 to 0.5 miles west of WIS 144 intersection.  The resurfacing segment will include milling the existing pavement, asphaltic overlay, beam guard replacement, intersection improvements, shoulder widening, pavement marking and new signs.

Reconstruction - Starting at 0.5 miles west of the WIS 144 intersection to County Z.  The reconstruction will expand the roadway to a four-lane divided segment including curb and gutter, storm sewer, beam guard, pavement marking and new signs. 

The existing Park and Ride lot located at the US 41 interchange will be closed and reconstructed as part of the project.

The contractor, Musson Brothers, is expected to complete work by October 2013, weather permitting.
