Work on Highway 47 in Keshena is scheduled to resume Monday, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Improvements include new asphalt, widening the road for bicycle lanes, new storm sewer and curb and gutter, reconstructing sidewalk and curb ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements and rehabilitation of the bridge over the Wolf River.

Starting Monday and running through July, northbound Highway 47 between Duquaine Road and Highway VV (east) will be closed and detoured. Motorists will use Go Around Road, Highway VV and Highway 47. Truck and oversize traffic will utilize Highway 22, Highway 29, Highway 45 and Highway 47.

Motorists are urged to use caution Monday as traffic control will take most of the day to set up.

Starting Tuesday, Highway 47 will be reduced to a single lane with temporary traffic signals on both sides of the Wolf River bridge. Work on the bridge is expected to take two months.

Drivers can also expect flagging operations as needed within the work zone.

Construction is currently scheduled for completion in November. Construction schedules are based on favorable weather conditions and construction status.
