US12/WIS 29 and other area summer road construction projects

US 12/WIS 29, 6th Street - 21st Street, Menomonie

Construction is to begin late June or early July and completion is expected in September.

This project includes:

  • Milling the existing concrete road surface and overlaying it with asphalt.

  • Reducing the through lanes in each direction from two to one and adding a shared left-turn lane in the center of the road between both through lanes.

  • Using the remaining width of the road between the through lane and outside curb for bike traffic and right-turning vehicles needing to decelerate outside of the through lane.

  • Closing the 5th Avenue East intersection with US 12/WIS 29 to allow for the development of the two-way, left-turn lane at the west end of the project.

  • Improving curb ramps where necessary.

During construction, no full closure of US 12/WIS 29 is expected. Most of the work will be completed under traffic using short-term lane closures with flagging operations and temporary side road closures. Lane closures will be avoided during peak morning and afternoon traffic times.
