WIS 23 (County A to Arcade Glen Rd.) Reconstruction - Need/purpose
Why is this project needed?
The original roadway was constructed in 1966, with one asphalt
overlay in the year 1982. General maintenance will no longer extend
the life of the pavement. The improvements planned as part of this
project will extend the life of the corridor.
intersections along the corridor are not able to handle the increased
traffic and pose a safety concern. An engineering crash analysis
indicated that the majority of all crashes along the corridor occur
at either intersections or driveways. WisDOT is working to provide a
safer roadway by limiting the number of direct access points while
ensuring that all travelers have equal access to WIS 23.
goal of the project is to increase safety by reducing congestion with
climbing and bypass lanes, realigning some intersections to
intersect with WIS 23 at a safer angle, and improving sight distance
along the project. By combining some access points on WIS 23 the
number of conflict points will be reduced. Providing a wider, paved
shoulder between Forest Ridge Road and Eastwind Road will help
remove traffic from the through movement when accessing residential
and commercial properties thus providing constant traffic flow
Upon completion, WIS 23 will be a safe and efficient corridor
balancing the needs of travelers and local citizens for at least the
next 20 years.
