Governor Walker approves WIS 29 improvements in Brown County
April 16, 2013
Work set to begin Monday, April 22
As part of his efforts to create jobs and make sure Wisconsin is open for business, Governor Scott Walker approved a $1.04 million contract to improve the operation and safety at the WIS 29 and County U and County VV intersections in Brown County.
The contractor is R.C. Excavating of Suamico.
Construction on the intersections begins Monday, April 22. When completed, turns from County U and County VV will be restricted to right in/right out movements while still allowing left turns from WIS 29 onto the side roads. To accommodate the remaining turning movements, J-turns will be installed. The J-turn intersection prevents direct crossing and left-turn movements from the side road, but accommodates these movements through a U-turn movement approximately one-quarter mile in each direction from the intersection. These side road movements are made indirectly by making a right turn, traveling about a quarter-mile on the divided main road, and then making a U-turn to proceed in the opposite direction on the main road toward the intended destination.
Motorists using County U would then use the WIS 32 interchange for their U turn. More information about the project and how J-turns function can be found at the project web page.
During construction, WIS 29, Milltown Road, Marley Road and County VV will remain open to traffic, however there may be some lane closures and minor delays. County U will be closed for approximately two weeks during the project. That closure will be announced.
Motorists are advised to remain alert and use caution when traveling through this or any work zone.
