Construction to close off stretch of Jackson Street and State Road through September

Jackson Street between West Avenue and 19th Street will be closed and State Road between 19th Street and Losey Boulevard will be closed temporarily

LA CROSSE, Wis (WKBT) – The next time you try to cut through La Crosse using Jackson Street or State Road, you’ll have to find a different route.

Starting Monday morning, Jackson Street between West Avenue and 19th Street will be closed. And State Road between 19th Street and Losey Boulevardwill be temporarily closed to all vehicles.

A detour will begin at West for eastbound traffic and Losey for westbound traffic.

The city is replacing manholes and the water main. The intersections between West and Losey will be closed temporarily for manhole replacement, but side streets will remain open to local traffic.

Drivers should expect delays and backups throughout the day, especially at peak hours.

Depending on the weather, the closure is expected to last through the end of September.
