WIS 73 reconstruction complete in Dane County

A nine-mile stretch of WIS 73 in southeastern Dane County is open after seven months of construction, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Southwest Region.

Work began in mid-April on the $10.4 million project, which extended from Interstate 39/90 north to US 12/18 near Cambridge and Deerfield.

WIS 73 was closed to through traffic in this work zone as construction crews improved roadway deficiencies including poor pavement conditions, drainage issues, substandard sight distances, and intersection safety along WIS 73.

Some final work will take place next week with minor traffic impacts.
