Highway W expected to reopen this week; Highway AH and SA paving updates; Highway MB work completed

Highway W — with a smoothed out turn that used to be nearly 90 degrees — is expected to reopen later this week, Kenosha County announced Tuesday.

The road has been closed since late May to through traffic. The project is now substantially completed, though some “punch list” items remain to be completed by the contractor, said Clement Abongwa, Kenosha County highway director.

From a news release:

… A new configuration of the curve moves the road about 75 feet to the west, onto property that the county acquired from private owners. This largely straightens out what had been a nearly-90-degree curve. “What you see now is a much safer situation for motorists and nearby property owners,”
Abongwa said.But even with the curve now easier to navigate, Abongwa said drivers should still use caution and observe the 35-mph posted speed limit in the area. The total cost of the Highway W project is roughly $800,000 …

Other Western Kenosha County county highway projects updates issued Tuesday are:

  • Resurfacing of Highway JF (119th Street), which was scheduled to start Sept. 12, has not yet begun due to delays by the project contractor. Abongwa said prep work is now expected to begin by the end of this week, with paving to occur next week. Abongwa said project completion is still expected by the end of the month. This project involves the stretch of Highway JF between 259th Avenue and Highway 83 (Antioch Road). One lane will remain open during paving operations, with traffic flagged.
  • Resurfacing of Highway SA (Camp Lake Road/103rd Street) began Monday, as scheduled. The work, in the area stretching between Highway AH (276th Avenue) and Highway 83, is expected to continue through next week. One lane remains open, with traffic flagged.
  • Resurfacing work is now complete on Highway MB (160th Avenue) between Highway 50 (75th Street) and Highway C (93rd Street) in the Village of Bristol.
