Highway 16 construction begins July 23 in La Crosse

Crews work 7 p.m. – 6 a.m. between Gillette St. and Losey Blvd. N.

Starting Wednesday evening, you can expect some delays on Highway 16 in La Crosse.

Crews will be working every night from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. between Gillette Street and Losey Boulevard N. Traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions.

The construction project is expected to be completed in a couple of months.

On Friday afternoon, the sign on Highway 16 changed from July 21 to July 23. WisDOT told News 8 the reason for the delay is because the contractor for this project has another project that’s running behind in southeast Wisconsin. The completion date should not be impacted, WisDOT said.
