Thursday closing of Washington Avenue is one-block long for one day

crossing

It is the smallest of roadway segment closings, but for today, it will be very annoying.

Wisconsin Highway 20 (Washington Avenue) will be closed for the day between 12th Street and 13th Street for milling and paving operations.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, traffic will be detoured between 12th Street and 13th Street around construction via 13th Street and Wisconsin Highway 32.

In coordination with the City of Racine, crews will perform sanitary sewer work at the railroad crossing on Highway 20.

To complete this work, a full closure of the highway will be required at a later date for approximately two to three weeks.

Official detour signage will be posted using nearby 12th Street, Highway 32 (Racine Street) and 13th Street to connect motorists back with Highway 20.
