Okee Bridge & County Road V Construction
Construction began on Monday, July 8th and will continue through October 2019. The Okee Bridge is expected to remain open through Labor Day weekend and then be closed from about September 3, 2019 until the project is completed.
The waterway under the bridge is to remain open to boat traffic at all times. However due to the work, there may be times when boat traffic may have to briefly wait for the contractor to accommodate them to pass under the bridge. The contractor will be placing navigational markers in the water.
Improvements include the realignment of CTH V at the Shamrock Road/Old Sauk Road intersection, replacing the existing bridge deck and rehabilitating the existing bridge structure on the causeway and providing sidewalk and additional parking to improve safety for pedestrians and vehicles.
Additional project details are available on the Okee Bridge & County Road V Construction page.
- Mon, July 8, 2019: Construction begins.
- Wed, August 14, 2019: County Road V expected to close at the railroad tracks near Hwy 113.
- Mon, September 2, 2019: Labor Day Holiday
- Tue, September 3, 2019: Okee Bridge expected to CLOSE to ALL VEHICLE TRAFFIC for the remainder of the project.
- October 31, 2019: Construction expected to end and Okee Bridge will reopen.
State Hwy 60 Construction (Between Lodi & Arlington)
The State DOT has scheduled a "mill & overlay" project for State Highway 60 from Arlington to Lodi minus the I-39/State Highway 60 interchange.
Construction on this project will last until September 2019. Most of the work is between I-39 & Arlington. However about 1000' feet of highway just east of Lindsay Rd will also be repaved. Ultimately Highway 60 will be detoured for approximately 2 weeks. More information available from the Wisconsin DOT project site.
Jul 9, 2019: Project Update
I wanted to take a brief minute to notify everyone that we have started construction on STH 60 between Lodi and Arlington. DL Gasser out of Baraboo is our prime contractor. For the rest of this week crews will be working on replacing pipes mainly from Arlington to the interstate. Next week July 15th we will be closing access to Highway 60 west of the interstate around Hillestad Rd. to Lindsay Rd. During this closure the contractor has been told they need to keep one lane open always, and that emergency vehicles may need to get through. During this closure the contractor will continue replacing cross pipes, reconstruct a 1600’ segment of STH 60, and replace beam guard and adjust the cattle pass just west of Hillestad Rd. The contractor is to have this segment of road open by August 3rd. The contract completion date is August 23rd, if an extension on the contract is needed we may push that date back further.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via phone or email. You can also contact Project Manager, Jim Simpson, at 608-509-2336.
