Work on Hartland Road and Waukesha County K/Beaver Lake Road Intersection
East leg of intersection will be closed to traffic 


Aug. 31, 2016

On Tuesday, September 6, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to begin an intersection improvement project at WIS 83 (Hartland Road) and County K/Beaver Lake Road, village of Chenequa, in Waukesha County.

The east leg of the intersection, Beaver Lake Road, will be closed for most of the project. Work is scheduled during daytime hours with flagging operations allowing travel through the work zone. Some congestion may occur with this operation. 

Built in 1927, the intersection has an out-of-date layout with a high potential for crashes due to substandard geometry and inadequate sight distance.

The project improvements include:

  • Resurface intersection and widen shoulders to improve safety and efficiency of operations

  • Removal of median island on County K west

  • Improve acceleration and deceleration tapers

  • Minimal tree removal as necessary to provide adequate sight distance

The contractor, Musson Bros. Inc., is planning on completing the $328,500 project later this fall. Utilities have been working in advance of the WisDOT project. The schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change.
