South High Point Road Bridge Closing - Project to Begin 2/6/17

February 2, 2017 1:34 PM

Dear Neighbor,

I was made aware on Thursday, February 2nd, that the WI State Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will be closing South High Point Road from Watts Road to D'Onofrio Drive starting on Monday, February 6, 2017 until approximately September 1, 2017.  Here is the information that was provided to me and that I am sharing with you:

The proposed project is a Wisconsin DOT bridge replacement project that will replace the existing bridge carrying High Point Road over US 12/14 (West Beltline Highway) and reconstruct 0.26 miles of High Point Road between Goldenrod Lane and D'Onofrio Drive.  High Point Road will be widened to accommodate two lanes of traffic plus a bike lane in each direction.   Sidewalk will be constructed along both sides of High Point Road, including the west side of the road between the bridge and D'Onofrio Drive where none currently exists. 

South High Point Road will be closed to traffic from Watts Road to D'Onofrio Drive for the duration of the project.  A signed detour will be posted using Watts Road, Junction Road and Mineral Point Road to direct traffic around the bridge closure.  

The project is scheduled to begin February 6, 2017 and last until September 1, 2017. More information regarding the project can be found at the WisDOT website for the project:

I am working to schedule an informational meeting for neighbors on this project in order to provide you an opportunity to ask questions and give your input to WisDOT representatives.
