Highway 151 To Close For Construction Project

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation wants to remind motorists that State Highway 151, northeast of Fond du Lac, between County Highway W and County Highway Q will be closed for an extended period of time starting Monday, August 1, while crews replace culverts in the area.

According to the Wisconsin D.O.T., the project will take 35 working days and the highway is scheduled to re-open in mid-September.

Access to businesses, properties and side roads will be maintained at all times according to a press release sent out by the D.O.T. The release also states that to not landlock and residents, the pipes will not be built concurrently.

The culvert replacements will help drainage to mitigate possible flooding and increase safety for motorists.

A detour will be set up around the construction using County Highways Q and W east of 151.
