The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is seeking public input on improvements along WIS 89 from Clarkson Road near Waterloo to Avalon Road near Columbus in Dodge, Dane and Columbia counties. Construction is currently scheduled for 2024.
A presentation and materials detailing the WIS 89 project are available to view on the project website at wisconsindot.gov/Pages/projects/by-region/sw/wis89-dodgedanecolumbia/default.aspx. You can also visit wisconsindot.gov and search “WIS 89 Columbia County”, select the second link and scroll to WIS 89 (Clarkson Road to Avalon Road) under the Columbia County heading.
In addition to resurfacing the WIS 89 pavement, the project will reconstruct the WIS 89 and County TV intersection north of Waterloo. This project will also repair or replace several culvert pipes under the highway and replace the box culvert over Mud Creek.
WIS 89 will be closed and detoured for reconstruction of the County TV intersection as well as work on the Mud Creek box culvert. The detour route will follow WIS 19 and WIS 73. WIS 89 will remain open to local residences and businesses.
All persons interested in the project are encouraged to view the website and provide input by contacting project staff via email, postal mail, or phone. Your comments will assist us in developing a project that will serve the needs of the traveling public and community. Your input is welcome and appreciated throughout the design process. Questions and comments can be directed to WisDOT Project Manager Kyle Treml at Kyle.Treml@dot.wi.gov, (920) 360-7029, or mailed to the WisDOT Northeast Region, 944 Vanderperren Way, Green Bay, WI 54304.
