WIS 23 (County A to Arcade Glen Rd.) Reconstruction - Impacts

Quick access

Proposed Traffic impacts:

  • Construction on WIS 23 is currently scheduled to begin in spring 2014 and will be completed in late fall
    2014. To minimize impacts to the public and businesses along the project, WisDOT is planning to construct
    the project in two stages. The highway will be closed and detoured during each stage. The WIS 49/Green Lake County A
    intersection will remain open to traffic with a four-way stop during all stages of construction. Access to
    downtown Ripon will be maintained during construction. A 12-foot minimum surface will be
    maintained at all times through the construction zone for local access and emergency services.

Work zone safety tips

  • Buckle up for safety
  • Expect the unexpected
  • Stay alert
  • Watch for flagging operations
  • Merge as soon as possible
  • Don't speed. Remember, fines double in work zones
  • Don't tailgate
  • Keep a safe distance
  • Observe posted signs
  • Be patient

Real estate impacts:

  • The department is purchasing right of way from 65 parcels to expand WIS 23 and realign intersections. Real estate acquisition is anticipated to be completed by fall 2013.

Environmental impacts:

  • Less than an acre of wetlands will be disturbed as part of this project.
  • To mitigate the unavoidable wetland loss the department will utilize the Hope Marsh wetland mitigation bank.
