Road resurfacing provides a smoother, safer ride. Vehicle traffic and seasonal weather wear down the driving surface over time. Resurfacing helps extend the overall service life of the road and typically occurs when the driving surface is in disrepair and routine preventative maintenance like patching is no longer effective. Pavement resurfacing consists of applying a new top layer to the existing driving surface. Materials used vary from road to road and consider several factors, including cost, construction schedule and the volume of traffic using the newly-paved road.
The following county highways will be resurfaced in 2020:
- Highway 33 from New Germany to Wright County line
- Highway 43 from Highway 10 to Highway 11
- Highway 18 from Highway 11 to Highway 13 (Bavaria Road )
Current Traffic Impacts
Expect flagging on each of the construction projects.
What to Expect
A thin layer of highway pavement will be ground off to improve the pavement smoothness, and a thin layer of asphalt pavement will be placed on top. Gravel will be added to the shoulders and new pavement markings will be installed.
Highways 33, 43, and 18
- Intermittent flagging operations are expected.
