Nightly interstate lane closures to start Monday

Reconstruction work is scheduled to start Monday on Highway 14 in Cross Plains, according to a release from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

The 1.2 miles of Highway 14 between County Road KP and Westview Court is expected to be closed until mid-October, officials said. The posted detour route will use County Road KP, Bourbon Street and County Road P. An alternate route will be posted using Highway 78 and Highway 12.

According to the release, traffic delays are expected in the village, and motorists traveling through Cross Plains are encouraged to use alternate routes.

Businesses on Main Street in Cross Plains will remain open during the construction work, and parking will be available on streets near Main Street, officials said.

The estimated $10.4 million project will include new underground utilities, new pavement, concrete sidewalk and a new and wider bridge over Brewery Creek, according to the release. County Road P will be realigned for a safer and more efficient intersection with Highway 14.

Officials said the project will improve traffic safety and operations through the community.

The project is expected to be completed by November.
