Business US 41 improvements and bridge replacement starting Monday, June 11
(Green Bay) As part of his efforts to create jobs and make sure Wisconsin is open for business, Governor Scott Walker recently signed an approximately $3.8 million contract to improve approximately 2 miles of Business 41 in the city of Peshtigo from South Dolan Avenue to Old Peshtigo Road, including replacing the bridge crossing the Peshtigo River. Work is set to begin Monday, June 11 and expected to be completed by mid-October.
General contractor for the project is Lunda Construction, Hilbert, WI.
The existing road will be resurfaced and the bridge replaced. The bridge work will include decorative lighting. Additionally, there will be curb and gutter repairs and some rebuilding of storm sewer inlets and manholes.
During the project, the roadway will be closed from NW Front Street to Pine Street. The remainder of the project will remain open with single-lane closures from 6 a.m. Monday to noon Friday. Work will be suspended from noon, Tuesday, July 3 to 6 a.m. Thursday, July 5 and again for Labor Day from noon Friday, August 31 to 6 a.m. Tuesday, September 4.
No motorized equipment will be allowed to operate during the evening and overnight between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Bus service and a pedestrian bridge south of the current bridge will operate during the project. The city of Peshtigo can provide further details regarding both.
