Beginning August 17, the Wisconsin Department of
Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to start work on a
rehabilitation project on US 41/45. The project limits
extend from the Washington/Waukesha County Line to the
US 41/45 split, in Washington County, a distance of
roughly six-and-a-half miles.
The project will do concrete base repair and resurfacing
throughout the project limits; install a high friction
surface treatment, while building up the curve banking
from Friedstadt Road to Holy Hill Road; and reconstruct
the southbound bridge at the US 41/45 split.
The initial work involves concrete base patching and
shoulder widening. With initial work involving lane
closures scheduled during off-peak times, minimal
traffic impacts are expected. When bridge work begins
this fall, greater traffic impacts are anticipated.
Built in 1955, with its last rehabilitation in 1995, the
US 41/45 roadway is deteriorated and is in need of
repair. This project will lead to an improved and safer
riding surface. With poor intersection geometry and
outdated traffic signals at the County Q and Lannon Road
interchanges, this project will also do minor
realignment and widening of the ramps at those
locations, while upgrading their traffic signals.
The contractor, Payne & Dolan, is planning on completing
the $23 Million project in fall of 2016. The schedule is
weather dependent and subject to change.
