In an effort to improve safety, construction on the Highway 47 and Northland Avenue intersection in Outagamie County got underway Monday. The project will go through September 1st, and will include a 75-day closure.
Those looking to take Highway 47 will need to take Highway 96 to Ballard Road (County E) to I-41. The County OO (Northland Avenue) detour includes I-41 to Ballard Road back to I -41. The Wisconsin DOT said the intersection had a high crash rate and is one of the more dangerous intersections. A multi-lane roundabout will be installed for traffic flow.
The project is estimated at 3 million dollars.
