County Highways V and C Road Construction
County Highway V will be under construction from the Marathon/Wood County Line to the Cedar Street. The work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday September 2nd and should be substantially completed by the end of September. During the first stages of construction the road will be posted with a Class B weight limit posting. The posting means that trucks traveling through the highway can only carry 60% of their normal legal weight. The weight limit posting is anticipated to last for two weeks.
During construction the roadway will be posted with signs reading “Road Closed, Local Traffic Only”. Access will be maintained at all times during construction, therefore a detour route will not be posted. At times the roadway may be rough. During construction the roadway will often be limited to one lane of travel. Expect delays. Please slow down and use alternate routes when possible.
County Highway C will be under construction from State Highway 13 to County Highway E. The work is scheduled to begin September 16th. During the first stage of construction, the highway will be closed to all traffic between State Highway 13 and Monroe Street (the section of the road with curb and gutter). A detour route is planned on State Highway 13 and County Highway F (south of Spencer). Access to residents and the school will be maintained on side streets.
Paving is scheduled to begin the week of September 22 and the project should be substantially completed in mid-October.
During the remainder of the construction the roadway will be posted with signs reading “Road Closed, Local Traffic Only”. After the initial stage of construction, access will be maintained at all times, therefore a detour route will not be posted. At times the roadway will have a gravel surface and may be rough. During construction the roadway will often be limited to one lane of travel. Expect delays. Please slow down and use alternate routes when possible.
All schedules are dependent on weather and equipment and are subject to change.
