Two State 49 intersections to be closed
Road construction is underway on State Highway 49 north of Iola.
According the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, improvements to State 49 were scheduled to begin May 16 in the town of Alban in Portage County.
The $261,000 project will include seal cracking, fog sealing and replacing the shoulder gravel between Cedar and Lake View roads.
During construction, the east/west intersection of Cedar Road and the north/south intersection of Nerdahl Road will be closed.
Motorists can also expect to encounter single lane closures, flagging operations, temporary rumble strips and reduced lane widths.
Work is currently scheduled to be completed in two stages. The first stage is scheduled from May 16 to late May. The second stage is scheduled from early August to late August.
There will be no road work or traffic impacts between late May and early August.
