Wisconsin 47 improvements in Langlade County are scheduled to begin on May 18th. Crews will work to replace the WIS 47 bridge over the Red River (Phlox) and extend the box culvert over the West Branch of the Red River in Norwood.
Pheifer Brothers Construction is the prime contractor for the $1.1 million project. Additional improvements include installation of sidewalk on the north side of WIS 47, erosion control, and the construction of a retaining wall.
The highway will be closed at the Red River bridge during construction. Traffic will be detoured via US 45, WIS 64, and WIS 55. Motorists can also expect to encounter temporary traffic signals at the culvert over the West Branch of the Red River.
