Wisconsin Avenue will get a quick makeover just before this happens again.

Just in time for the Night Market, Wisconsin Avenue's getting paved

Just in time for the 2019 NEWaukee Night Market debut on Wednesday, June 12, the city's Department of Public Works will hit Wisconsin Avenue with a high impact paving project, giving "the avenue" a nice sheen and fresh lines.

To help the project progress more quickly road crews will mill the current pavement and resurface the roadway immediately, doing two blocks at a time to minimize closures. North- and south-bound traffic will be maintained during the work, DPW says.

As soon as the fresh pavement markings are done, the section will be reopened.

The project is slated to begin at 6 a.m. Monday, June 10, weather permitting, at Water Street and proceed west to 6th Street.

The work picks up again Tuesday morning at 6 at 6th Street and will proceed west to 10th Street, again, two blocks at a time.

DPW says the two-day approach will minimize impact on businesses, residents and folks traveling through Downtown during the work, which is expected to wrap up each day before the afternoon commute begins.

But, still, you might want to leave a little extra time if you're traveling through Downtown on Monday and Tuesday next week.
