A portion of County Highway M north of Wilton will be closed starting Monday, Oct. 15, according to the Monroe County Highway Department.
To accommodate reconstruction, the highway will be closed between Limestone Avenue and County Highway MM, through the intersection with Kettle Road, 1.7 miles north of Highway 71. Kettle Road also will be closed at County Highway M.
The start of the project may be delayed depending on the weather, and it is slated for completion by the end of October. The highway will reopen at night and on weekends. At all times during the project, law enforcement and emergency response vehicles will have access.
Advance notification signs will be posted, but an official detour route will not be established.
Mathy Construction of Onalaska will be the prime contractor on the $125,000 project, which will be funded by Monroe County and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation through its Local Road Improvement Program.
