DICKEYVILLE, Wis. — A one-mile stretch of U.S. 61 through the Village of Dickeyville is scheduled to be repaved this summer.
According to Project Manager Tim Maedke, of Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the asphalt road surface will be milled and removed, then repaved between Pitzen and Hickory lanes.
A small amount of storm sewer work also will be done as part of the project, in addition to several intersections getting sidewalk and handicap ramp improvements. Sidewalk work will be staged, so a sidewalk on one side of the street will remain open while the other side is being replaced.
U.S. 61 will remain open to traffic during construction, with traffic being controlled by flaggers.
Iverson Construction, of Kieler, is the general contractor.
While Maedke did not know when the project would start, he said Iverson would have 40 days to complete the work once it begins.
Of the $3.5 million total cost, the Village of Dickeyville is responsible for just more than $100,000.
