 PORTAGE COUNTY HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT
TO RESUME RECONSTRUCTION OF CTH P IN JUNCTION CITY

The Portage County Highway Department will resume the reconstruction on CTH P (Main Street) starting Monday, September 18th.  The work is a continuation of the reconstruction project from 2016 and the project limits will be from approximately CTH G north to CTH G south.  The work will consist of removal of the existing pavement and concrete base, crushing of the concrete base to be re-used as road base material, replacement of failing curb and gutter, and paving new asphalt surface.  There will also be drainage improvements which includes the replacement of a large box culvert west of CTH G north. 

CTH P will be closed to through traffic during construction and a detour will be posted.  The Highway Department will be working with emergency management officials to maintain access for emergency vehicles at all times.  Access will be provided for residents and adjacent businesses but it may be restricted at certain times during the construction. 

The Highway Department apologizes in advance for any inconvenience.  Due to the type of construction and limited access, all through traffic should utilize the detour for their safety as well as worker safety.  If you must travel through the work zone, please remember to slow down and be aware.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Highway Department at 715-345-5230.  Project updates will also be posted on the Department’s website: http://www.co.portage.wi.us/highway/
