Highway 33 resurfacing to begin Monday, delays expected

8.5 miles from county line to Cashton to be resurfaced

Commuters using Wisconsin Highway 33 may need to start leaving for work earlier this week.

Work on another stretch of the highway begins Monday morning. The project includes resurfacing 8 1/2 miles from the La Crosse County-Monroe County line towards Cashton. Culvert pipes are also expected to be replaced.

In all, the project will cost a little more than $2 million.

The newly-resurfaced road should last for nearly a decade. Project manager Dan Kleinertz says delays can be expected.

“This will be done under flagging traffic, so traffic will be stopped periodically,” said Kleinertz. “Delays will be kept to a minimum, anywhere between five and 15 minutes.”

The project should be completed by mid-September.
