To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Gov. Tony Evers signed a $307,635 contract to improve one mile of State Trunk Highway 49 in the village of Brandon from County TC to the western village limits in Fond du Lac County.
The project is scheduled to begin Monday, July 26. It is a 30-working day contract and expected to finish in early September 2021. The highway will remain open during construction.
Northeast Asphalt, Inc. of Greenville, Wis. is the Prime Contractor.
Construction includes milling 2-inches and paving 2-inches of existing roadway, pedestrian curb ramp replacements, spot curb and gutter replacement, and pavement marking.
State Trunk Highway 49 will remain open using lane closures and flagging operations in the work zone. There may be short durations when access to side streets and driveways is restricted for pavement operations. The contractor will notify property owners 48 hours in advance of any driveway restriction.
The project will improve the pavement surface which will reduce surface roughness and provide a smoother driving surface for motorists. The improvements will also extend to life of the existing pavement. The new pedestrian curb ramps will meet current safety standards.

Work Zone Safety
Each year in Wisconsin, both highway workers and motorists are killed and injured in crashes that happen in highway construction zones. Motorists should slow down, be patient and pay attention to their surroundings in this and all work zones.
