The $1.5 million roundabout project began April 15, 2019. It had a target completion date of July 3, 2019.
According to the DOT – Project overview
The project proposal is to reconstruct the intersection of WIS 33 and County P to a roundabout in order to reduce the history of fatal/severe injuries type crashes. The project is being funded through the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).
Dating back to 2013, multiple attempts have been made to improve safety at the intersection of WIS 33 and CTH P with signing including overhead stops, flashing beacons and warning signs. The improvements have proven insufficient as four more crashes were recorded in 2015. Due to the continuation of crashes, the intersection was converted to all-way stop controlled (AWSC) in late 2015 as a temporary measure before reconstruction of the intersection.
