City of Westby:  Road Project Update -3-27-2024

Residents & Business Owners,

  We have big changes happening next week.  Unfortunately, with all the rain, an extensive number of potholes have appeared on the existing pavement.  The contractor, City and County have been working together to try to stay ahead of them.  With that being said, the contractor will be installing an asphalt overlay along the southbound/eastbound lane from near WCCU to Coon Prairie Rd on Tuesday, after the detour is implemented.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to remedy this situation as quickly as we can.  Patching will continue until the overlay is installed.

 The northbound/westbound detour of USH 14 will be implemented sometime on Tuesday.  This is the time when no parking will be allowed along USH 14 or on the detour route.  The contractor will be begin removing existing pavement and sidewalk immediately after the overlay installation is complete, so we please ask that you do not park along either route started Tuesday morning at 7am.


Attached is an updated version of the detour map which now includes where pedestrian crossings will be located during the detour.  Please note that traffic on State Street will be under a stop condition at Bekkedahl Ave during the detour.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is also going to be testing a pilot program for audible devices at some of the pedestrian crossings on the project.  These devices will be motion activated and will verbally direct pedestrians along the correct route through the project.


Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we continue to progress through Stage 2.
