The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) announced Gov. Tony Evers signed a $909,337 contract with Pewaukee-based Century Fence Company for a regionwide pavement marking replacement project. Construction will kick off May 8.
WisDOT plans to replace epoxy paint highway markings throughout the Northwest Region, transportation department officials said. Crews will place pavement markings in the following highways in order, with other locations to follow after completion.
Motorists will encounter lane closures controlled by flagging operations while crews paint, WisDOT officials added. Construction will continue from May and wrap up in October.
WisDOT will post information for traffic impacts, transportation news and improvement project updates through @WisDOTnorthwest and the region’s 511 website.
Drivers are reminded using cell phones in work zones is illegal in Wisconsin, WisDOT officials noted. Alerts and updates aren’t intended for use while driving.
