WIS 156 improvements scheduled to begin in Shawano County

April 7, 2014

Resurfacing project scheduled to begin as early as April 21

Work on approximately .75 miles of WIS 156 between Robley Road (Clintonville) and Lessor Navarino Road is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 21.

RC Excavating Inc. of Suamico is the prime contractor for the $897,000 project. Crews will remove the existing roadway and replace it with a wider pavement surface to provide a safer surface for bike and pedestrian traffic. Additional improvements include installing new storm sewer, street lighting, pavement markings, and curb and gutter.

Construction is scheduled for completion by mid-July 2014. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction status.

During construction, WIS 156 will be closed to through traffic and detoured via WIS 187, County F and WIS 47. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.

Eighty percent of the project will be paid for with federal transportation funds; the remaining 20 percent will be paid with state transportation funds.

Motorists are reminded to drive with caution in work zones and should be alert for slow moving vehicles. For more information regarding traffic impacts in the North Central Region:
