POLK COUNTY -- To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Gov. Tony Evers has signed a $3.94 million contract with prime contractor Monarch Paving Co. of Amery for an improvement project on US 63 from County J to US 8 in Polk County.
Construction is scheduled to start Tuesday, May 31.
The pavement on US 63 is showing signs of deterioration as are culverts along the stretch of road. To address this, WisDOT plans to:
- Recycle a portion of the existing pavement and place 2.75 inches of new asphalt over it.
- Rehabilitate or replace culverts.
During construction, US 63 will remain open to traffic, but motorists will encounter single-lane closures controlled by flagging operations. Work is scheduled for completion in July.
