Replacement Of Hwy. 141 Bridge In Wausaukee To Start in Spring

Reconstruction of the Hwy. 141 bridge over the Wausaukee River in the Village of Wausaukee will start in spring of 2014 and not be done until late fall, area residents were informed by Wisconsin Department of Transportation officials at a public information Open House in Wausaukee School on Wednesday, Jan. 8. Southbound traffic will cross the river over a culvert on Division Street. Bids for the bridge reconstruction will be let in March.

Reconstruction of the highway itself through the village, complete with sidewalks and underground utility replacements, will begin in early spring of 2016 and continue at least until mid to late November of that year. Bids for that project will be let in November of 2015 for construction starting in early spring of 2016.

During the 2014 construction there will be two-way traffic up to the Hwy. 141 bridge. Northbound traffic will continue to use the bridge, first one side and then the other, while construction is in progress. Southbound traffic, one-way during the construction period, will be detoured on Division Street to Tyler Ave. and then along First Ave., to a tie-in back to 141 at the Hwy. 180 intersection.

DOT representatives, in answer to questions at the meeting, said the same detour will be in effect in 2016 when the highway through the village is reconstructed, except that traffic will be one-way for the entire length of Hwy. 141 through the village, with northbound traffic continuing one way on Hwy. 141 and southbound detoured along the Division/Tyler/1st Street route from just south of Hwy. 180 to just north of Division Street. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained for emergency service vehicles, home owners, retail owners and customers except for limited periods during underground utility reallocations, sidewalk replacements and driveway improvements. There will be advance notice when those things are to happen.

During the bridge reconstruction new sanitary sewer pipes will be hung from under the bridge, replacing the ones that are there now, and new connections will be installed to the existing sewer lines.

The bridge itself will be a single-span concrete structure with decorative railings and sidewalks installed on both sides. The river is at one of its widest parts at the Hwy. 141 crossing because of the dam downstream.

Todd Mulvey, project engineer with Coleman Engineering, said the original bridge was built in 1925 and widened in 1948. The new bridge will be twice as long as it is now, and perhaps slightly narrower, since the paved portion of the highway through the village will be two feet narrower due to elimination of on-street parking after the 2016 reconstruction.

On hand for the Open House presentations and the question and answer sessions that followed were WisDOT Project Manager Paul Zoellner and Supervisor Daniel Segerstrom, in addition to Mulvey.

Several permanent right of way acquisitions and some temporary grading easements will be necessary to complete the proposed project, but the DOT does not anticipate a need to purchase any homes or buildings. Preliminary plan sheets were on display for the open house showing the real estate involved. Plans are to acquire all needed property prior to start of construction.

The reconstruction projects are being done at this time because both the bridge and the existing Hwy. 141 pavement have reached the end of their life expectancy and are deteriorating.

Storm sewer will be replaced during the 2016 reconstruction, and curb and gutter will be added from County C to Division Street. Sidewalk will be added along the east side of the highway from Hwy. 180 to Monroe Ave., and from Beach Ave. to North Ave. Sidewalk also will be added along the west side of the highway from Monroe Ave. to Van Buren and from Tyler to Division Street. Ditches will be eliminated from most of the right of way.

There are no current plans to extend the sidewalk to the school north of the village.

The Open House was somewhat scantly attended, with about 25 citizens taking part in addition to Village President Slug Radtke, County Board Supervisor Joe Policello, and Carl Soderberg from the office of Congressman Reid Ribble.
