(Walworth County Public Works press release) Governor Evers signed a $1.5-million contract to improve WIS 20, between WIS 67 and Townline Road in Walworth County. Work is scheduled to begin the week of May 10, 2021.
“Walworth County is thrilled with increased state investment in local infrastructure,” says Walworth County Public Works Director Richard Hough. “With increased road work by the state and local authorities comes an increased chance for a tragic accident. Drivers are advised to please slow down and follow signs and signals in and around public works projects.”
During construction, WIS 20 will remain open to traffic with the use of flagging operations.
Construction is anticipated to be completed in late summer 2021. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction progress.
Payne and Dolan Inc., is the prime contractor for the project and will implement the following:
• Milling and base patching
• New asphalt pavement
