2022 Road Work

The Town of Dunn will have two road work projects this year.

The first project is a complete road reconstruction project that will tentatively begin July 5th and end September 2nd.  During this time the following roads will be closed: Rutland-Dunn Town Line Rd (from US Hwy 51 – Stoughton to Netherwood Rd - Oregon), Hook Island Rd, Labrador Rd and Sand Hill Rd south of Rutland-Dunn Town Line Rd.  Local traffic to residences and businesses will still be accessible.  Please find alternative routes as this construction area will be patrolled and fines will be given.

The second project consists of chip sealing beginning the week of July 25th. Chip seal will be placed starting the week of July 25th. The chip seal will remain on the roads for around 2-3 weeks, weather-dependent. Following, any remaining loose chip seal will be swept up. The roads that will be affected are:  Mahoney Rd, Evans Rd, Jordan Dr, Stace Rd, Hawkinson Rd, Lally Rd, Wilnor Dr, Alice-Pauline Dr, Vic Anderson Rd Princess Ct, Woolever Ct, Dunnwood Way, Rolling Wood Ct, Burning Tree Rd, and Burning Tree Cir.  While there will not be any road closures, please be aware that there may be delays. Please plan accordingly. Slow your speed as there will be loose gravel on these roads! We appreciate your patience and cooperation during these important road maintenance events.


Proposed Construction on County Highway AB
The Dane County Department of Highway and Transportation is developing plans for a project located on County Highway (CTH) AB, from US Highway 51 to CTH MN in Dane County. The project length is approximately 3.5 miles and is anticipated to start in the fall of 2022. CTH AB will be closed to traffic during this project but homeowners will have access to their properties.
From US 51 to Fish Camp Road, this project will consist of milling 2-inches of existing pavement and paving back 2-inches of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA). In addition, the paved surface is proposed to be widened from 22-feet to 30-feet. The roadway is proposed to have narrower driving lanes by reducing the width from 2 11-foot lanes to 2 10-foot driving lanes with double white edgelines. When lanes are narrow, drivers tend to drive with more caution which can help reduce the average speed of motorists. The double white edgelines are intended to provide a buffer between pedestrians/bicyclists and traffic.


From Fish Camp Road to CTH MN, the project will consist of paving a 2-inch HMA overlay. In addition, the paved surface is proposed to be widened from 22-feet to 30-feet. The roadway through this section is proposed to consist of 11-foot driving lanes with 4-foot paved shoulders. The edgelines through this section are proposed to be the standard single white edgeline. 


In order to widen the paved surface from Fish Camp Road to CTH MN, ditch grading will be needed. Cross culverts and driveway culverts will be reviewed to determine if they need to be moved to accommodate this grading.

 

This is not a Town of Dunn roadwork project. Questions or comments should be directed to Jeremy Rach, P.E, Highway Engineer: (608) 283-1416 or Rach.Jeremy@countyofdane.com.
