Work on WIS 67 in Walworth County to begin
Traffic signals and resurfacing projects will get underway


July 10, 2015

On Monday, July 13, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to begin work on a traffic signal installation project at the interchange of I-43 and WIS 67, in the city of Elkhorn. The project will enhance safety by installing traffic signals where they currently do not exist, along with updated lighting and signing.

The contractor, Outdoor Lighting, plans on completing the $450,000 project this fall.

The ramps on I-43 will remain open during construction. Outside shoulder closures will occur on WIS 67 for the installation of traffic signal equipment. Turn lane and through lane closures on WIS 67 will occur for short durations to install new signal poles.

In early August, WisDOT is also scheduled to begin work on a resurfacing project on WIS 67 from Theatre Road to Elkhorn Road, in the village of Williams Bay. Spot improvements will include asphaltic base patching, curb and gutter treatments, pedestrian curb upgrades and sidewalk rehabilitation. The entire corridor, within the project limits, will be milled and overlaid.

The contractor, Stark Asphalt, plans on completing the $989,000 resurfacing project this fall.

For the resurfacing project, daytime, single lane closures will occur with flaggers directing traffic. In the evening hours, treated roadway that is safe for travel will be opened back up to traffic. At least one lane in each direction on WIS 67 will remain open to traffic at all times.

The schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.
