Two Witzel Avenue intersections to close for two weeks in Oshkosh

Closures needed to finish construction of multi-lane roundabouts

(Green Bay) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region Office in Green Bay is announcing the temporary closure of two Witzel Avenue intersections being reconstructed as multi-lane roundabouts. The closures impact the Koeller Street and Washburn Street frontage road intersections with Witzel Avenue starting Monday, August 23.

The construction schedule details include:

• Witzel Avenue/Koeller Street closed Monday, August 23 – Saturday, September 4

• Witzel Avenue/Washburn Street closed Monday, August 30 – Saturday, September 11

• No traffic allowed through the intersections during these times to complete the construction of the roundabouts.

The work is part of an $8.3 million project that began in August 2009, adding lanes of traffic to Washburn Street, constructing the Koeller Street bridge over Sawyer Creek, and replacing the Witzel Avenue overpass. The overall project is tentatively scheduled to be completed on September 11, at which time all roads currently closed will reopen to traffic.

Motorists are advised to remain alert and use caution when driving through this or any work zone.
