Construction to begin on WIS 36 in Walworth and Racine Counties


July 3, 2013

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is announcing that work will begin next week on WIS 36, from WIS 120 to Westridge Avenue in Walworth and Racine Counties.
The work on WIS 36 consists of milling the existing asphalt pavement and placing an asphalt overlay. A short segment of WIS 36, between Hospital Road and Mill Street will be reconstructed to lower the existing hill. Intersections will be improved to include right turn lanes and bypass lanes. Shoulders will be paved for bicycle accommodations. 
WIS 36 will be accessible to local traffic at all times. A short-term detour will be in effect for roughly one month to reconstruct the roadway between Hospital Road and Mill Street. The signed detour will follow WIS 120 to WIS 11 to the Burlington Bypass. The remainder of the project will be completed while open to traffic by utilizing a flagging operation.
The contractor, Payne and Dolan, is expected to complete work by this fall, weather permitting.
