Construction to start on WIS 162, La Crosse County

May 22, 2014

Work is beginning June 9 on WIS 162 between H. Hundt Road and Kammel Coulee Road in Coon Valley, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southwest Region.

This project utilizes Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funds to reconstruct a sharp curve on WIS 162, which has experienced an above average crash rate.

The majority of WIS 162 will be constructed under traffic utilizing single lane closures and flagging operations. The final stage of the project will be constructed with WIS 162 detoured and is anticipated to last between three to four weeks. The detour route utilizes US 14/61 to WIS 27 to WIS 33.

The project cost is estimated at $900,024. The project is scheduled for completion by August 15.

Motorists are encouraged call 511 or log onto Wisconsin 511 online for the latest traffic updates locally and statewide.
