Starting Monday, August 14, 2017, the Racine County Public Works Department will remove the large culvert on Plank Road (CTH A) over the West Branch of the Root River Canal and replace it with a bridge. CTH A between North Colony Avenue (USH 45) and Spring Street (CTH C) will be closed to all traffic at the bridge construction site, 1/2 mile east of 61st Drive. A detour will be posted for traffic to use USH 45 north of CTH A, and Washington Avenue (STH 20) between USH 45 and CTH C. The project is expected to end in late October 2017, pending weather conditions. Message boards will be placed at USH 45/CTH A, and at CTH A/CTH C to give advanced noticed of the closure. Any questions about this project can be forwarded to the Racine County Public Works Department at 262-886-8440.
Please be aware that the road closure barricades and signage near the entrance to the Town’s collection site are being relocated further east on Spring Street (CTH C), away from the site’s entrance. While the site will now be within the Highway 45 project work zone, any resident driving to it is considered local traffic for that purpose and can continue to use it. Residents living within the work zone may use Highway 45 or Spring Street from the west to access this site, as long as that route is passable; all others are encouraged to come to the site from the east on Spring Street to avoid adding to traffic on Highway 45.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will be reconstructing USH 45 from just north of Union Grove to Church Street in 2017. The project is expected to be completed late this year. That section of USH 45 will be closed to through traffic during construction. Access to the businesses near USH 45 and CTH C in the work zone will be allowed during construction; access to those businesses will be from the east and west on CTH C. The signalized intersection at USH 45 and CTH C will be replaced as a roundabout as part of this project.
In the spring of 2018, USH 45 will be reconstructed from Church Street to STH 20. This section of USH 45 will be closed to through traffic during the reconstruction of this roadway. Two existing box culverts will be replaced and one existing box culvert will be extended during this reconstruction project. This project is expected to be completed in September of 2018.
The official detour for both phases of this project will use STH 11, STH 75 and STH 20. Any project-related questions can be directed to Wisconsin Department of Transportation Project Manager Allen Gilbertson at 262-548-8817 or Allen.Gilbertson@dot.wi.gov.
