One final road construction project gets underway later today as crews take advantage of good fall weather.
Work is scheduled to begin on State Highway 17 between Lincoln County G and Norwegian Road. The $149,000 project will improve the WIS 17/County G intersection by constructing an offset, right-turn lane to provide enhanced visibility of approaching southbound WIS 17 traffic from County G.
During construction,WIS 17 will remain open to traffic. Motorists can expect to encounter single lane closures and flagging operations.
Construction is currently scheduled for completion by Friday, October 18, 2013. The schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and construction status.
Ninety percent of the project will be paid for with federal transportation funds; the remaining 10 percent will be paid for with state transportation funds.
