I-39/US 51 (Business 51-Foxglove Rd.) >
Existing southbound I-39/US 51 bridge over Business 51 and the
southbound I-39/US 51 bridge over the Wisconsin River are reaching the
end of their service life and are in need of repair/replacement.
Existing southbound I-39/US 51 pavement is also
showing deterioration and in need of repair.
Improve safety of I-39/US 51 and eliminate structural deficiencies
by repairing or replacing the existing bridges and improving the
roadway surface by replacing the pavement.
The structure over Business 51 will be
raised to alleviate the substandard vertical clearance with the
Canadian National Railroad.
The structure on I-39/US 51 over
the Wisconsin River will be widened to meet current design standards
for shoulder widths and increase capacity to four lanes; three through
lanes and one off ramp.
Southbound I-39/US 51 exit ramp to Business
51 will be constructed as a separated parallel-style ramp, allowing the
exit area to be much more visible to motorists.
