Throughout 2021 we were busy working on two projects for STH 80 in Richland County, Wisconsin.
Westbrook worked with the City of Richland Center to construct the first 480 feet of a shared use-path for pedestrian and bicycle use along Hwy 80 South. The path connects the existing pedestrian path along STH 80 north of the Pine River Bridge to the newly constructed path outside the STH 80 right-of-way. Westbrook designed this 480-ft portion of the path and worked along with the City of Richland Center to obtain permission from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to connect the path to the existing path north of the Pine River and construct a new portion of the path within the existing road right-of-way.
This project is part of the Safe Routes to School Program. Although we’re based out of Spring Green, WI, we have strong ties to our neighborhood communities. Several of our employees reside in the Richland Center area and have children within the Richland School District. We’re proud to be a part of such a great project that will be great for students and families!
The STH 80 rehabilitation project from the Wisconsin River to CTH RC was also constructed in 2021. The project involved milling and overlaying STH 80, as well as, improving safety through the replacement of existing beam guard and installation of new beam guard along STH 80.
