Active Road Construction Projects

July 8 - October 2019:  Okee Bridge & County Road V Construction

The Columbia County Highway Department will be reconstructing County Road V through Okee, from State Highway 113 to Summerville Park Road, including the Okee Bridge.

Construction is scheduled to begin shortly after the July 4, 2019 holiday weekend and 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.

Proposed 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.

See the Okee Bridge & County Road V Construction page for complete details about this project.

July 8 - September 2019:  State Highway 60 (between Lodi & Arlington) Construction

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.

Anticipated Future Road Construction Projects & Studies

Fall 2022 - Fall 2023:  Interstate 39/90/94 & State Highway 60 Interchange

The State DOT has scheduled a reconstruction of the Interstate 39 & State Highway 60 interchange to start in the Fall of 2022 and continue through the Fall of 2023.  The project includes replacement of the Interstate 39 northbound and southbound bridges and reconstruction of State Highway 60 from Pine Hollow Rd to Sunset Dr.

The DOT also plans to replace the existing cloverleaf ramp configuration with a standard diamond ramp configuration (a ramp in each of the 4 quadrants of the interchange).

The Interstate ramps and State Highway 60 will be closed for extended periods through the duration of both construction seasons.

2023:  State Highway 60 (between Riddle Rd-Lodi & Wisconsin River Overflow Bridge)

The State DOT has scheduled a "mill & overlay" for State Highway 60 from the Wisconsin River Overflow Bridge to Riddle Rd in the Town of Lodi.  Construction is scheduled for the year 2023, with the potential to be advanced to 2021 if money is available.

2023:  State Highway 113 (between Hwy 60 & Merrimac Ferry)

The State DOT has scheduled a "mill & overlay" for State Highway 113 from State Highway 60 in the City of Lodi to State Highway 188 at the Merrimac Ferry.  Construction is scheduled for the year 2023.

The project will consist of removing 3.5 inches of existing surface and paving back 3.5 inches of new asphaltic material.  Additional work includes installing a safety edge on the new pavement, placement of new shoulder aggregate material, replacement of old or damaged culvert pipes, improvement of curb ramps in the Town of Lodi, installation of centerline rumble strips, replacement of beam guard end terminals to meet new standards, and new pavement marking installation.

See this Wisconsin DOT letter (PDF) for more details on the project and contact info to offer feedback.
