US 51 improvements scheduled in Vilas County

September 9, 2013

Crews plan to begin work on US 51 between Vilas County N and County H beginning Monday, September 23.

Northeast Asphalt Inc. is the prime contractor for the $1.3 million project. Crews will mill approximately five miles of the roadway and repave it with new asphalt. Additional improvements include:

  • Installing centerline rumble strips between County N and County H
  • Making spot repairs on the centerline rumble strips between County H and County W
  • Installing new pavement markings

US 51 will remain open to traffic during construction. Motorists can expect to encounter single lane closures and flagging operations.

Construction is currently scheduled for completion by late October 2013.

One hundred percent of the improvement project will be paid for with state transportation funds.
