On Wednesday, June 21, the Wisconsin Department of
Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to begin a series
of surface treatments at several locations throughout
Milwaukee County. To minimize impact to the traveling
public, work will take place during the evening-to-early
morning hours. To facilitate work in these locations,
lane closures and some ramp closures will be necessary.

Crashes in these areas are above the statewide average.
The locationsí roadways and structures will receive
either a friction surface treatment or polymer overlay.
These specially-engineered pavement overlays provide a
rougher texture and have the following benefits.
Reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities
Relatively low in cost compared to geometric
Produce negligible environmental impacts
Short installation time has minimal impact on traffic
The contractor, Michels Corp., plans on completing work
in each location within one or two weeks. Some noise is
associated with this operation. The schedule of work is
weather dependent and subject to change.
