WIS 164 Washington County

County Q to WIS 60
WIS 164
Rehabilitation
Washington County

Project Description

Wisconsin Highway 164 is a two lane rural arterial north-south commercial trucking route. This project, which is located primarily in the Village of Richfield, will address the poor pavement condition, safety, and traffic flow within the project corridor that serves local commuter, farming, and commercial traffic between Waukesha and Hartford. This project involves safety improvements and the rehabilitation of WIS 164 from County Q to WIS 60. Although this project does not involve roadway expansion, extensive public involvement is required due to past roadway projects along the corridor. The following improvements are proposed to address key deficiencies and to improve safety along the corridor:

  • Intersection operational improvements at the Hubertus Road and WIS 164 intersection.
  • Intersection operational improvements at the WIS 167 and WIS 164 intersection.
  • The roadway will be resurfaced from County Q to Cherokee Trail and from Grey Stone Drive to 2,800-feet north of Club Drive.
  • Sight distances will be improved from Cherokee Trail to Grey Stone Drive by reconstruction of the existing roadway to correct vertical alignment deficiencies.

General Tasks

  • Development of a detour plan and a Type 2 TMP.
  • Development of a crash analysis.
  • Development of traffic control and staging plans.
  • Assistance with public outreach.

WIS 11 Racine County

County C to 71st Street
WIS 11
Reconstruction
Racine County

Project Description

Wisconsin Highway 11 is a two-lane roadway with both urban and rural segments passing through the Village of Union Grove. This project includes the rehabilitation and reconstruction of a two-lane highway with both urban and rural sections. The following improvements are proposed to address key deficiencies and to improve safety along the corridor:

  • The current WIS 11 pavement will be pulverized and repaved from County C to Schoen Rd.
  • The remainder of the roadway will be reconstructed from Schoen Rd to 71st.
  • For the rural sections, shoulders will be increased to a 10-foot width, 5-feet of which will be paved to accommodate bicycles, and the size of the ditches will be increased to improve drainage.
  • For the urban sections, curb and gutter will be included on both sides of the highway.
  • The intersection of WIS 11 and US 45 will be reconstructed to increase capacity, and to improve safety, left-turn lanes will be added from WIS 11 to USH 45.

General Tasks

  • Development of a detour plan and a TMP.
  • Development of traffic control and staging plans.
  • Assistance with public outreach.
  • Assistance with general project QA/QC.

IH 43 TCP Milwaukee & Ozaukee Counties

Silver Spring Drive to WIS 60
IH 43 TPC
Milwaukee and Ozaukee Counties

Project Description

The I-43 North-South Freeway is among the busiest routes in Wisconsin and is a critical Interstate link between southeast Wisconsin and the entire state. I-43 provides access to manufacturers, merchants, commuters and tourists within southeast Wisconsin, the Milwaukee metropolitan area, and other areas including Green Bay, Sheboygan, Manitowoc and Chicago.

WisDOT has maintained and rehabilitated the ramps, bridges, pavements and other structures on I-43 for 50 years. The North-South Freeway has exceeded its design life and it is no longer economical to maintain. The corridor needs full evaluation, so it can serve the communities into the future.

The project team will study the corridor, including the service interchanges and adjacent arterial roads in Milwaukee and Ozaukee counties. This review will:

  • Identify safety concerns.
  • Assess physical condition and configuration of the roadways.
  • Identify potential environmental concerns and socioeconomic factors that may be affected by the corridor.

General Tasks

  • Assistance with roadway design
