County Road KP Construction
Dane County will be doing improvements on CTH KP the next 2 months. Included in the improvements are culvert replacements to ensure the drainage is adequate, then milling and overlaying the pavement and reshaping the shoulders. Finally, placing beam guard in some locations.
Regarding traffic control, there will be daily closures as they replace 20 culverts, which will generally proceed from US 14 to STH 19. Each culvert takes about a day to replace, so the work will start around 7:15 am at that culvert and no traffic will be able to pass there due to the culvert trench. Residents will need to find alternate routes for the day, but normal traffic will resume around 3:00-5:00 pm as each culvert replacement is completed. These closures will only take place M-Th from approximately May 10th – June 17th.
Following the culvert replacements, they will shift to milling and paving operations, which will not close the roads, but will be completed using moving flagging operations to close one lane at a time. Slowdowns should be expected and alternate routes are encouraged. These operations will take approximately 2 weeks and take place M-F approximately 7:00 am to 5:00 pm June 17th – July 2nd.
The County is asking for your patience during this process and hope that the improvements and new pavement will be worth the short term inconvenience. They also request that people slow down and stay alert for the safety of their work crews.
