A resurfacing project on U.S. 10 from County A southeast of Ellsworth to the east Pierce County line will begin in earnest on Monday, July 26. Survey work and traffic control setup are anticipated to start today, July 22.
Monarch Paving Co. of Amery is the prime contractor. The pavement on this segment of US 10 is showing signs of deterioration. To extend its service life, the Wisconsin Department project consists of:
- Removing 3.25 inches of the existing pavement and replacing it with 3.25 inches of new asphalt.
- Adding centerline rumble strips.
- Replacing culverts.
- Upgrading guardrail.
During construction, U.S. 10 will remain open to traffic, but motorists can expect single-lane daytime closures controlled by flagging operations.
Construction is scheduled for completion in November. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction progress.
