MONROE COUNTY, Wis. (WKBT) - 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.
