Starin Road/Tratt Street Intersection Closed For Approx. Two Months (Correction made re: motorcycles)

Correction: The Banner stated that motorcycles are not permitted on the “alternate” route. It is actually ATV/UTV/RTV’s that are prohibited on UW-W streets. We appreciate that Dave Kachel provided this correction.

Beginning Monday, June 10, 2024, Tratt Street, between Starin Road and Carriage Drive [the first street south of Starin Road], will be closed to thru traffic for water main, sanitary sewer, and force main work. Curb & gutter spot repairs, pedestrian ramp ADA improvements, and new asphalt are also part of this project. The Starin Road and Tratt Street intersection will be closed to traffic. Traffic will be detoured using CTH U to CTH D, STH 59/Newcomb Street and Main/Milwaukee Streets. Tratt Street is anticipated to reopen August 9, 2024.

Editor’s note: The official detour, shown above, is quite long. An unofficial alternate route could be taking Schwager Dr. off Tratt Street (where there’s a large UW-W sign), past the baseball field and football stadium, and turn right on Warhawk Dr., which dead ends into Starin Road. Then turn left for Prairie St. to Main St., or right for Prince St. to Main St. Note that large trucks are prohibited on this unofficial route. Also be aware that there are many UW-W summer camps with children and youth, so driving slowly and cautiously is advised.
