Construction on Interstate 39 near Stevens Point begins Monday

The 8-mile-long stretch of highway will remain open with single-lane and ramp closures during construction, which is expected to last through November.

STEVENS POINT – Motorists will likely experience delays on Interstate 39 near Stevens Point as an improvement project begins July 15 and is scheduled for completion Nov. 8.

The project area extends 8 miles between State 54 or Exit 153, north to North Second Street of Stevens Point or just north of Exit 161.

The four-lane highway will remain open throughout construction, but there will be single-lane closures and on-ramp closures. The schedule of the work depends on favorable weather conditions, said Bryan Rose, communications manager for the Department of Transportation.

American Asphalt of Wisconsin was selected as the prime contractor for the $11.7 million project.

The project includes resurfacing lanes and ramps, constructing a parallel ramp on the on-ramp to the northbound US 10 interchange, replacing the railing, installing a high-friction surface treatment on northbound I-39 at the Business 51 interchange, installing pavement markings and rumble strips on the shoulders.
