On Monday, July 10, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin pavement repair operations along WIS 145, from WIS 167 (Mequon Road) to County P, in Washington County.
The purpose of the project is to improve the condition of the corridor by resurfacing the roadway, implementing sidewalk improvements and replacing the existing guardrail at the bridge over the Menomonee River. The project also includes replacing the Wisconsin Southern Railroad crossing on Pilgrim Road just north of Mequon Road.
Beginning the week of July 17, the corridor will restrict through traffic to safely facilitate and accelerate construction activity. For through traffic looking to get around the closure, a signed detour will be routed along I-41 and Mequon Road. Please note that access for local traffic will be maintained at all times.
During operations at the railroad crossing on Pilgrim Road, a temporary full closure of WIS 145 at this location is needed. This work is scheduled to begin the week of July 24 and will be in place for approximately one week. It is suggested that local traffic follow the temporary detours along Mequon Road, Maple Avenue, County F and Country Aire Drive.
The contractor Payne & Dolan, Inc. plans on completing the $1.9 million project by late summer. This schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change.
