I-39 bridge improvements in Mosinee scheduled to begin after Labor Day

August 22, 2014

Work to improve the I-39 bridges at the WIS 153 interchange (Mosinee) is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, September 3.

Lunda Construction Company is the prime contractor for the $3.4 million project. Improvements include:

  • Removing and reconstructing new concrete bridge decks and parapet walls
  • New guardrail and some pavement replacement on I-39
  • Repairs to the concrete slope paving under the bridges
  • Some minor repairs to the median along WIS 153

To minimize impacts to traffic, work will be completed in two stages. The first stage is scheduled for completion in mid-November 2014.

Traffic on I-39 can expect to encounter single lane closures. The I-39 interchange ramps at WIS 153 will remain open at all times.

Motorists on their way to the Central Wisconsin Airport should adjust their travel time and be prepared to encounter possible delays.

Traffic impacts on WIS 153 include:

  • One lane in each direction between Orbiting Drive and Aviation Way
  • Temporary, single-direction nighttime closures between the I-39 ramp terminals from Sunday to Thursday
    • When eastbound WIS 153 is closed, traffic will be detoured via I-39 southbound, WIS 34, and I-39 northbound.
    • When westbound WIS 153 is closed, traffic will be detoured via I-39 northbound, Maple Ridge Road, and I-39 southbound.
  • Crews may use the sidewalk along westbound WIS 153 for flagging operations. Pedestrians may need to adjust their routes and travel time accordingly.

Construction for the entire project is scheduled for completion by October 2015. The project will be paid for with a combination of federal, state and local transportation funds.
