Construction next month on stretch of WIS 162

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – A sharp curve on Wisconsin 162 in Coon Valley is getting a makeover.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation said the curve is common for crashes.

Construction will start June 9 on Wisconsin 162 between H. Hundt Road and Kammel Coulee Road.

The project is expected to be completed by August 15.

WisDOT said the construction is possible thanks to funds from the Highway Safety Improvement Program. The goal of the program is to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads, including non-State-owned public roads and roads on tribal lands.
