County Road 23 is closed from County Road 96 to County Road 86. The detour will use County Road 96, Highway 3 and County Road 86.
Do not go around the barricades or follow the trucks into the construction site. The road may look passable, but it could be slippery sand, wet, or you might encounter a drop off that could damage your vehicle. By following the law and obeying traffic signs, you keep yourself and the contractors safe.
Access to the businesses will remain available throughout the project but may be limited to from the north or south only. See detour map.
Construction still on schedule
Because of the rainy summer and fall, 10 ½ days of work have been lost. However, the project is still on schedule based on our bidding process. Bidding for the project started three months behind schedule due to DNR permits being issued later than expected. Bid allowed some work to be completed in spring and summer 2020.
The contractor finished paving Thursday.
Net week, they will work on the guard rail, mailboxes and sign installation and gravel shouldering. The temporary striping will be going on soon. After that, they can open the road. An opening date has not been confirmed.
Thank you for your patience as the Contractor completes the work before shutting down for the winter.
Schedules are subject to change due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
