WisDOT Hwy 20/83 Construction project

State Hwy 20/83 reconstruction, approximately 1.8 miles long, from Buena Park Road to State Hwy 36, plus about 2 blocks of East Main Street from the bridge to Milwaukee Street. 
The project will improve safety, traffic flow, riding characteristics, intersection operation, sight distance, and drainage of the 2-lane undivided roadway. Current and projected traffic volume was another consideration in moving forward with the project.
