WIS 47 improvements scheduled for Vilas County

July 5, 2013

Work on 4.4 miles of WIS 47 between West Bolton Lake Lane (Woodruff) and Vilas County D (Lac du Flambeau) is currently scheduled to begin Monday, July 15.

Integrity Grading and Excavating Inc. of Schofield, is the prime contractor for the $3.5 million project. Crews will replace the pavement, make intersection improvements, improve drainage, and place curb and gutter within the urban area of the highway.

The highway will remain open during the majority of construction, using flagging operations.

WIS 47, north of Fence Lake Lane, will be detoured via Vilas County H and US 51 for approximately two weeks. County D north at the intersection with WIS 47 will close for approximately one week for intersection reconstruction and storm sewer installation. During this closure traffic will be detoured via Raven Lake Road.

Construction is scheduled for completion by early October 2013.
