Loomis Road rehabilitation project to get underway
Project extends through three counties

 

June 28, 2016

On Tuesday, July 5, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to begin work on a rehabilitation project on WIS 36 (Loomis Road), from Racine County Y to WIS 100. The approximate seven-mile project runs through Racine, Waukesha and Milwaukee counties. Improvements on the project include

  • Reconstruction of WIS 36 between Champions Drive and US 45/County OO.

  • Resurfacing or base patching on the remainder of WIS 36 within the project limits

  • Resurfacing of US 45/County OO near WIS 36

Long-term, single lane closures will be in effect in each direction. Some congestions may occur with these closures.

Built in 1997, this roadway is in need of maintenance to extend its service life. The segment from Champions Drive to US 45/County OO is being reconstructed because the roadway has settled.  

The contractor, Super Western, is planning on completing the $4.1 million project in fall of 2016. The schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change.
