Occasionally, the Public Works Department may need to close a street for short periods of time to allow tasks such as culvert replacement or water valve repair to take place. In other instances, such as the East River flooding over Ledgeview Road, closures may last days until conditions are deemed safe for traffic to resume using the roadway.
During any type of road closure, the Public Works Department will place advance warning signage as well as large barricades across the road. Please do not under any circumstances move the signage or barricades to the side of the road. Tampering with and/or moving a road closure barricade may result in a citation of up to $300 per Wisconsin Statute Section 346.42.
