July 12, 2013

Closure necessary for WIS 153 roadway resurfacing

Crews are planning to close WIS 153 between Maple Street and Park Street, in the village of Elderon, beginning Tuesday, July 16.

The closure is necessary for crews to resurface 7.1 miles of roadway along WIS 153. The schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and construction status.

The project will be completed in two stages:

  • Stage one: WIS 153 will be closed to through traffic and WIS 49 will remain open. WIS 153 traffic will be detoured via I-39, WIS 29 and WIS 49. This stage is expected to be completed by late September.
  • Stage two: WIS 153 will reopen to traffic. WIS 49 will be closed and detoured via WIS 161, WIS 110, US 45, and WIS 29. This stage is expected to begin late September and will be completed in late October/early November.

Construction is scheduled for completion by early November 2013.
