EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – The 2015 construction season is underway with work on the Wisconsin approach to the new St. Croix Crossing starting on Monday, Feb. 2.
The $12.5 million project will include the following work:
• Grading from just north of County E to WIS 64
• Grading, pavement and incidentals on the relocated County E.
• Constructing the interchange structure at County E and the roundabouts at the new WIS 35/County E intersection and at the interchange location
Because of the nature of the work, motorists can expect road closures and detours this year:
• Beginning in late April: Anderson Scout Camp Road will close until October. Detour will be in place.
• Late July-September: County E will be detoured.
• September-November: Traffic will be using the new WIS35/WIS 64 westbound lanes, the old highway will be open as a frontage road and the roundabouts will be open to through movements.
More information about the traffic impacts this summer can be found here: http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/projects/nwregion/stcroixcrossing/index.htm
H. James & Sons, Inc. based in Fennimore, Wis., who performed the first portion of the approach work was awarded this contract in December and will serve as the prime contractor again in 2015.
