Jackson, WI – The Department of Public Works are taking down barricades on Hwy 60 and reopening the road to traffic in Jackson, WI.
According to Jackson police there will still be workers doing concrete and finishing work in the area. Police are asking drivers to be courteous, slow down and give them a little room.
The construction project, Industrial Drive to Ridgeway Drive, and south on Jackson Drive, is slated to wrap up Friday, June 9.
According to the Village the underground utilities, paving, line painting, and the start of concrete work is wrapping up and the next thing to finish is paving driveways, restoring lawns and whatnot.
Jackson, WI – A segment of Highway 60 in the Village of Jackson will close for a utility upgrade starting March 6, 2023. The segment of road is set to reopen June 5, 2023.
“Between March 6, and about June 5 approximately, they’re doing the underground lateral repairs, and other utilities within that zone,” said Jackson Police Chief Ryan Vossekuil.
The section of road repair will stretch from just east of CTH P, over the railroad, past Jackson Drive to Ridgeway Road.
The detour swings north on CTH P to NN and then east to CTH G and back south to Hwy 60.
If you want to swing around south take CTH P to Sherman Road and cross to the east and then take CTH G to the north.
Traffic will only be permitted within the project limits to motorists accessing a local business or residence.
The Chief said next year will be a resurfacing project on Highway 60 between CTH P to Eagle Drive and then there will likely be a roundabout constructed at Eagle Drive which is the intersection with Piggle Wiggly and the entrance to Living Word Lutheran High School.
That will be the second roundabout within about a mile of the roundabout on CTH G to the east and the one to the west is at Highway 45.
Chief Vossekuil said emergency vehicles will be allowed through on Hwy 60 but if the public tries to skitch through, they could be cited for failure to obey sign in a construction zone, and it rings in at $136.60.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience with this project. We know it’s a headache, but it’s going to be worth it when it’s done,” he said.
Detours will be marked.
