Highway to be resurfaced, restriped to accommodate two-way center
To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Gov. Tony Evers has signed a $446,967 contract for a rehabilitation and safety improvement project on WIS 35 from approximately 600-feet south of the County F intersection to the intersection of West Avenue North in the Polk County village of Dresser. Work is scheduled to begin Monday, Sept. 21.
Monarch Paving Co. is the prime contractor for the project. Crash patterns show higher than normal rear-end crashes on this segment, and the project aims to prevent similar crashes in the future and extend the life of WIS 35. Construction will entail:
Repairing curb, gutter and inlets.
Milling the existing asphalt pavement.
Overlaying WIS 35 with new asphalt.
Restriping the road to accommodate a two-way, center left-turn lane.
During construction, one lane of WIS 35 will remain open during daylight hours, and traffic will be controlled by flagging operations. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained.
Construction is scheduled for completion in October. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction progress.
