CTH D will be reduced to one lane in each direction under flagging operations, so drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to seek alternative routes. Construction will take about two weeks to complete.

The 1000-foot-length project will consist of milling and replacement of asphalt surface, application of a high friction surface treatment, pavement marking and improved signage. The project will be administered by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation as part of the Highway Safety Improvement Program.
