Next stage of WIS 23 construction from Green Lake to Ripon scheduled to begin July 28

July 11, 2014

Crews plan to begin stage two of construction on WIS 23 in Green Lake County (between County A west and WIS 49/County A east) on Monday, July 28. This stage of the project includes the reconstruction of the Puchyan River bridge.

Construction on stage one, WIS 23 (WIS 49/County A east to Arcade Glen Road in Ripon) is still under way. Stage one had been scheduled for completion before crews began work on stage two, however a late spring and continued wet conditions delayed progress. To ensure the entire project is completed on schedule in November 2014, the detours for both stages will be combined for approximately three weeks.

Currently scheduled traffic impacts for WIS 23 in Green Lake and Fond du Lac counties include:

  • July 11 through July 28 – WIS 23 (WIS 49/County A east to Arcade Glen Road in Ripon) is closed to through traffic and detoured via County A, County K, County KK, and WIS 44/49.
  • July 28 through August 15 – WIS 23 (County A west in Green Lake County to Arcade Glen Road in Fond du Lac County) will be closed to through traffic and detoured via WIS 73, County K, County A, County K, County KK, and WIS 44/49.
  • August 15 through November 2014 – WIS 23 (County A west to WIS 49/County A east) will be closed and detoured via WIS 73, County K, County A.

Local access to properties and businesses located on the project will be maintained. Motorists may encounter daytime, single lane closures and flagging operations on WIS 49/County A east. The WIS 23/49/County A east intersection will remain open to traffic with a four-way stop during all stages of construction.
