ROTHSCHILD, Wis. (WSAU) – The D-O-T is getting ready to do some major work on Business 51 in Rothschild over the next few months.
Signs and detours are getting ready for a full resurfacing of the road from County E north to Everest Avenue starting August 20th. Spokeswoman Kristen McHugh says the department will start work in just over a week. “Crews will mill off the existing asphalt and replacing it. They'll also be doing some curb and gutter replacement and improve drainage.”
McHugh says traffic will remain open through the project, but Everest Avenue will remain closed through October. “We'll be having single lane closures through the whole project and drivers will want to find other routes.”
Construction is scheduled for completion in mid-October 2012.
Total cost for the project is just over 800-thousand dollars.
