RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT CTH I FROM STH 19 TO CTH V

The Dane County Highway Department is planning a reconstruction project on CTH I from STH 19 to CTH V. This project will consist of culvert pipe replacements and then a 3 inch asphalt pavement overlay.  Additionally as part of this project the intersection of CTH I and Norway Grove School Road will be reconstructed.  Work is scheduled for September and a detour will be signed utilizing STH 19 to STH 113 to CTH V.  Additional information will be available on our Dane County website as the project approaches.


CONSTRUCTION ON SCHUMACHER ROAD BEGINS

UPDATE: Construction will begin Monday, July 27th. Stay alert and drive cautiously as at times Schumacher will be closed to all travel except for those who reside in the construction area.

As you may know, this years major road project is Schumacher Road from Easy Street to County Highway V. There will be detours set up as this will include road closures. Residents living on Schumacher Road will be allowed access only.  As part of this, the blind hill approaching Cuba Valley Road will be lowered to meet DOT requirements. By doing this, the town was able to qualify for a state grant that will reimburse the town 50% of the cost for lowering the hill. The hill by Hauser Road will also be adjusted to ensure proper vision of cross traffic. As part of the grant requirement, the road will be widened and the shoulders will be too.  This was due to the traffic study results that showed an average of 1,200 cars traveling on Schumacher a day. The first stage of this project will be the utilities being relocated. Please watch for the people working on the sides of the roads when passing.


UPDATE: TDS RESTORATION

We appreciate the many calls regarding the restoration that needs to be done from the prior years TDS project. The Town has been in contact with the construction company and they are in the area starting the restoration.

If after the first week of May your area has not been restored, contact the town at (608) 846-3800. Thank you for your patience in this matter.
