The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will close State Highway 15 near Givens Road in Outagamie County beginning Monday, Aug. 21, until early November 2023.

During the closure, connections will be made from the existing State 15 and from County Trunk T to the newly constructed State 15 bypass.

The project is taking place a one-quarter mile west of Givens Road to one-quarter mile east of Givens Road.

County T and Givens Road will also close at State 15 during the project.

WISDot officials and construction project leaders held a public information meeting at Hortonville High School on Tuesday, Aug. 15.

Emergency personnel and residents in the impacted area attended the meeting.

Officials assured them temporary access will be maintained to all parcels within the closure area. A detour for non-local traffic will be signed.

Impacted businesses were encouraged to visit the WISDot website at projects.511wi.gov/wis15expand/ for information on temporary signage regulations and construction updates.

The project has an onsite construction office at 204 W. Main Street, Hortonville. For construction questions while work is taking place, contact the construction project leader Ken Baierl at 920-366-2272 or [email protected].

During the project crews will construct a multi-lane roundabout to the existing County T and existing State 15 (future CTH JJ).

They will also construct a temporary two lane to four-lane transition and remove 1,200 feet of existing State 15 alignment to be replaced by new lanes.

Crews will also install guardrail, signing and markings needed to complete the roadway.
