On Tuesday, September 8, the Wisconsin Department of
Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to start a
project on a short segment of Evergreen Drive under
I-43 (Rock Freeway), that extends about 100 feet
north and south of the overpass, in Waukesha County.
During construction, Evergreen Drive will be closed
at these project limits for duration of the project.
Motorists and pedestrians will need to use alternate
routes during this time.
The improvements associated with this project
include the installation of new asphaltic pavement;
improved drainage systems; and implementation of
roadside guardrail, to provide pier protection for
the I-43 bridges. Currently, there is a lack of
permanent pier protection for these I-43 structures.
This project will enhance safety not only by
providing pier protection, but also by installing
crash worthy energy absorbing terminals to the ends
of the guardrail.
The contractor, Musson Brothers Inc., is planning on
completing the $260,000 project in fall of 2015. The
schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.
