The Wisconsin Department of Transportation seeks public input on proposed improvements to Highway 13 between 26th Road in the town of Spencer and Highway 98 in the village of Spencer. Construction is scheduled for 2024, but could occur as early as 2023.

Proposed improvements include:

  • Removing the top layer of the existing pavement and replacing with a new layer of hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavement.
  • Replacing non-Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps.
  • Commercial driveway upgrades at locations that do not meet sidewalk ADA standards.
  • Installing new centerline and shoulder rumble strips through the rural segments.

Traffic impacts:

During construction, Highway 13 will remain open with single-lane closures and flagging operations.
