The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is soliciting public opinion on proposed improvements to Highway 13 between 26th Road in the city of Spencer and Highway 98 in the town of Spencer. Construction is planned for 2024, but could take place as early as 2023.
Suggested improvements include:
- Removing the top layer of the existing pavement and replacing it with a new layer of hot mix asphalt (HMA).
- Replacing non-Americans with curb ramps that comply with the Disability Act (ADA).
- Commercial driveway upgrades at locations that do not meet ADA sidewalk standards.
- Installation of new centerline and shoulder rumble strips through the rural segments.
During construction, Highway 13 will remain open with single-lane closures and marking work.
