Governor Walker approves WIS 44 improvements in Green Lake County
June 8, 2012
Traffic will be detoured via WIS 33 and WIS 73
As part of his efforts to create jobs and make sure Wisconsin is open for business, Governor Scott Walker recently signed a $4 million contract to improve four miles of WIS 44 between the Columbia County line and Kingston.
Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 18, 2012.
Mashuda Contractors is the prime contractor for the project. Crews will resurface the roadway with new asphalt, widen the shoulders, flatten slopes and remove hazards within the highway safety clear zone. Other improvements include replacing all culvert pipes and replacing and adding additional storm sewer to mitigate flooding.
During construction, WIS 44 will be closed to through traffic and detoured via WIS 33 and WIS 73. Local residents and businesses within the project limits will have access to the road during construction.
Construction is scheduled for completion in October 2012.
Eighty percent of the project will be paid with federal transportation funds; the remaining 20 percent will be paid with state transportation funds.
