Highway 26 Closure, Detour to Begin Monday

A portion of Highway 26 in the area will close to traffic Monday as crews continue resurfacing work and road repairs. The highway will be closed between the Fond du Lac/Winnebago County line and Interstate 41 in Oshkosh for a period of 12 days. Construction crews will be replacing three culverts and milling pavement during the closure. The road will be closed until Noon on Friday, May 24th, and a signed detour will be in place using Interstate 41 to Highway 151 back to Highway 26. The Department of Transportation says access to properties within the work zone will be maintained during the closure. The entire project is expected to be finished by mid-July.
