Drivers on Highway 42 in the Town of Pierce will be making detours starting October 14th. That's when the Wisconsin Department of Transportation will begin work to replace a culvert between 8th Road and 9th Road. DOT Regional Communications Director Mark Kantola says the culvert replacement project became necessary when inspectors were preparing for another planned highway improvement project.
The detour on Highway 42 between 8th Road and 9th Road in the Town of Pierce will last until October 18th. That's when the road will reopen although construction crews will do some finishing work until October 25th.
