Note: With the help of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, we will be telling our readers what work took place on the Highway 45 project in the week just past and what is expected to take place in the coming week. Check back every Friday for the latest.

What happened this week — From County A2/WG to 86 th Street, crews completed installing erosion control devices. Grading continued for the southbound US 45 shoulder for the permanent shoulder widening. Common excavation began for a right turn lane on southbound US 45 at County WG. Utilities continued relocations. The rain did affect production for the contractors and utilities.

What’s expected for next week — Crews are anticipated to continue excavation of US 45 in the southbound lanes along the corridor. Milling piles will be used to backfill the excavation.  Utilities will continue relocations.

Here’s a link to the project’s page on the state transportation department’s website.
