County B closures in Plover

Project completion planned for late November

Map: Portage Couinty Highway Department

Traffic patterns will be changing as part of the County Trunk B road improvement project in the village of Plover starting Thursday, May 16.
The next phase will include the full closure of the County B westbound lanes from Hoover Avenue to Interstate 39 while reopening the eastbound lanes in that area to one lane.

Drivers heading westbound from Interstate 39 will need to use the detour route that follows Interstate 39 and State Highway 54. County B west of Hoover Avenue will remain open to one lane in each direction during this phase.

Hoover Avenue intersection will also remain open for this phase and may be used to access businesses in the area as well as Maple Drive.

Work for the project will consist of a rural-to-urban reconstruction of County B from Wisconsin Avenue to Hoover Avenue and urban pavement replacement of County B from Hoover Avenue to the Interstate 39 ramps.

The project includes replacement of the deteriorated concrete pavement, widening the pavement median, new curb and gutter or asphalt shoulders, new concrete sidewalk, asphalt multi-use path, and a signalized intersection at Mecca Drive.

Funding was was made available through the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Surface Transportation Program-Urban which provides up to 80% state and federal funding for the design and construction.

The Wisconsin DOT has awarded the construction contract to Zignego Company with construction oversight completed by Point of Beginning Inc.
The project is expected to be completed in late November and will be constructed in multiple phases.

The Portage County Highway Department will post weekly updates throughout the project at www.co.portage.wi.gov/283/Highway-Department.
