Work to begin on Evergreen Drive under Rock Freeway
Roadway to be fully closed during construction


Aug. 31, 2015

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.
