WIS 28 to
close for construction in Washington County
March 24, 2014
The Wisconsin Department of
Transportation (WisDOT) will begin work on WIS 28 from
US 45 to 144 in Washington County. Work will begin on
this six mile stretch Monday, March 24th. The work is
expected to continue until the end of the year.
Beginning Monday, WIS 28 will be closed to thru traffic.
Eastbound traffic will be detoured via US 45 south, CTH
H east, and WIS 144 north.
Parts of WIS 28 will be reconstructed while other parts
of the road will be resurfaced. The bridge over the
Milwaukee River will be replaced. The project will
include the smoothing out of hills and improving sight
distance for motorists. These improvements are expected
to enhance motorist safety.
Improvements to sewer and water mains will be in the
initial stage of the project with bridge work expected
to start in May.
