The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is announcing 7.4 miles of WIS 49 from Waupun (County MMM) to Brandon (Clark Street) in Fond du Lac County is tentatively scheduled to reopen to through traffic the morning of Wednesday, July 23. It had been closed since June 24. For the remainder of the project, WIS 49 will remain open with lane closures and flagging operations.

This closure was needed to replace cross culverts and update a railroad crossing.

The $2.5 million project includes resurfacing the asphalt pavement, replacing select deteriorated cross culverts throughout the project, localized areas of slope flattening at culvert ends and other areas, and replacing the railroad crossing. The project is expected to be completed by the end of September.

Motorists are reminded to use caution and remain alert when driving through this or any work zone.
