By John Faucher

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will close State Highway 22/76 from the Waupaca County line to U.S. Highway 45 in Bear Creek, starting Tuesday, Sept. 5.

During the closure, State 22 will be detoured for 45 days.

The detour route will use County Trunk T and County Trunk O.

The work is part of a larger two-year $7.6 million contract to improve 12.7 miles of State 76 from State 54 in the Shiocton to US 45 in the town of Bear Creek.

Work on the Waupaca County side will include a mill and overlay of the existing pavement, Realignment of median islands at the State 76/22 and US 45 intersection. Work also includes widening for an improved right turn lane on State 22/ US 45 and pavement markings and shoulder gravel improvements.

The two-year project is expected to finish in summer of 2024.

Work on the Outagamie County side will include a mill and overlay of existing pavement, culvert replacements, beamguard replacements, curb ramp replacements within the village of Bear Creek, new pavement markings and shoulder gravel.

The two existing bridges on the State 76 route are being replaced by box culverts.

State 76 will be detoured for the culvert work, paving and structure replacement work in 2023 and 2024. Specific dates will be determined.

Traffic control in the form of flagging operations will be used to close one lane at a time in portions of the work zone.
