This summer WisDOT will reconstruct US 51 from Pleasant St to Ontario St. starting in March with expected completion in October (weather dependent). The project will occur in 2 phases resulting in DeWitt St closure and later, E Wisconsin St closure (and detours). This is a big project right through downtown and the resulting street closures and traffic detours will cause challenges, comments, questions and complaints.
As this is a WisDOT project, a Project Manager has been selected by WisDOT to answer those questions and concerns. WisDOT has established a website for this project at https://projects.511wi.gov/us51-portage/map/. The website project an overview of the project, schedule, detours, project updates and contact information.
Questions? Visit the website as it will be updated as the project progresses.
