U.S. Highway 51 construction update

Roadway construction in Minocqua and Woodruff along U.S. Highway 51, from Old Highway 70 in Minocqua to 3rd Avenue in Woodruff continues this week.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation provided the following updated information: 

Roadway construction

• Utility relocation work by Wisconsin Public Service and Frontier Communications continues.

• Crews began installation of the temporary traffic signals at the intersections of Hwy. 51 and State Highway 70 West and Hwy. 51 and County Highway J. The temporary traffic signals are expected to be operational about April 11.

• Crews plan to begin removal of vacated buildings near Packing Plant Road. These operations are expected to begin the week of April 7.

Storm sewer work is expected to begin April 7 and water main work is expected to begin April 14. These operations are dependent on favorable weather conditions.

Traffic impacts

Motorists can expect to encounter a minimum of a single lane in each direction during most of the work. At times, traffic may be reduced to a single lane with flagging operations. Motorists are reminded to use caution when traveling through the work zone and should plan for delays.

Next public meeting

The next construction information meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 10, at the Minocqua Center, 7:30 a.m.
