June 13, 2014

Work on WIS 55/160, between Shawano County S and Highview Road (Pulaski), has been rescheduled to begin on Monday, July 21.

Northeast Asphalt Inc. is the prime contractor for the $572,000 project. Crews will mill 2.88 miles of the existing pavement and overlay it with new asphalt. Improvements also include removing and installing culvert pipes.

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