Construction is beginning on US 18 (E. Moreland Boulevard) in Waukesha County


March 7, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) invites the community to attend a construction kick-off meeting to share traffic handling and business access during this year’s construction:

WHEN: Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
WHERE: Wisconsin Department of Transportation Office, Room 151 141 NW Barstow Street Waukesha, WI 53187

Resurfacing work will begin this spring on the US 18 (E. Moreland Boulevard) project from Manhattan Drive to I-94 in Waukesha County. The community is encouraged to attend the construction kick-off meeting.

The contractor, Payne and Dolan will begin construction in March and finish work in November. E. Moreland Blvd. will remain open to traffic during construction with temporary lane shifts and changes in how customers access businesses, driveways and cross streets. To accommodate construction, some lanes will be closed at various times. Access to businesses will be maintained except for short periods to pave driveways. Median openings to residential streets will also remain open most of the time.

This $8.9 M project will lengthen turn lanes, incorporate median improvements, and reconfigure the intersection of Kossow Road and Abbott Drive.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead and stay alert in the work zone.
