Access to DNR-owned land to be temporarily closed during WIS 13 project
Project includes resurfacing pavement, completing culvert work and replacing guardrail
Replacing guardrail along WIS 13 in Douglas County during a 2022 resurfacing project will result in the temporary closure of a portion land owned by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources near the Bois Brule River.
Construction currently is scheduled to begin in spring 2022 on the segment of WIS 13 from County H to Engdahl Road. To maximize the life of WIS 13, the project will:
- Mill the existing asphalt and overlay approximately 15.88 miles of WIS 13.
- Clean or replace culverts or place liners in existing pipes.
- Add new pavement markings and centerline rumble strips.
- Repair flumes.
- Replace guardrail, curb and gutter at various locations.
The proposed improvements will temporarily impact land owned by the Department of Natural Resources where WIS 13 crosses the Bois Brule River. Minor grading activities to construct fill slopes for the replacement of the guardrail on the north side of WIS 13 will take place on DNR land. The new fill slopes will minimize impacts to the DNR land as much as possible, match in at the toe of the existing slope and not change the drainage pattern. During construction of the WIS 13 project, access to the DNR land at this location will be temporarily closed.
