A major construction project will be finishing earlier than expected in the Fox Cities.
The orange barrels from the tri-county Highway 441 expansion will be taken off highways a year earlier than expected. The project is now expected to be done in November 2019.
“People that drive it every day, the economic development that is going to help on the west side of 41 is going to be huge,” said Tom Buchholz, the 441 project manager for the Department of Transportation.
The expansion of six miles of US-10 and 441 from four lanes to six started in 2014. The project also includes the reconstruction of five interchanges and the Roland Kampo Bridge.
“We wouldn’t be here if we didn’t care deeply about the Fox Valley,” said Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) during a press conference at the project’s Greenville office.
