WI STH 52 Construction Informational Meeting

WIS 52 Construction Begins This Month In Wausau

Public meeting scheduled June 23, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is conducting a construction information meeting to discuss this year’s improvements to WIS 52 between 17th Avenue and McClellan Street in Wausau.

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 23, from 5 to 6 p.m., in the Council Chambers of the Wausau City Hall, 407 Grant Street, Wausau. Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing and require an interpreter may request one by contacting Kristin McHugh at least three working days prior to the meeting via the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System (711).

Work is currently scheduled to begin as early as Monday, June 27.

Improvements include resurfacing the roadway, replacing sections of curb and gutter and sidewalk, pavement replacement, and new traffic signals.

Traffic impacts

  •           The road will remain open to one lane in each direction.
  •        Traffic backups and delays will likely occur during peak travel times. To avoid delays, local traffic may want to use an alternate route.
  •         Some lane closures on 1st Street, 1st Avenue, and 3rd Avenue to accommodate work on WIS 52.
  •         The south intersection of WIS 52 and 1st Avenue will be closed for approximately one week for railroad improvements. The schedule for the closure has not yet been determined.

Work is scheduled for completion in late October 2016. Construction-related traffic impacts are subject to change and are dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction status.

Adjacent businesses and property owners are encouraged to sign up for project updates. To learn more about the WIS 52 construction project, visit the construction website at: http://projects.511wi.gov/stewartave/
