Main Street Projects 2023 and 2024
The City of Viroqua is undertaking two projects on Main Street through Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) grant funds. The first, planned for 2023, is funded by the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) and involves the sections of Main Street outside of downtown, Brendel to HWY 56 and South Street to Rusk Avenue. The second, planned for 2024, is funded by the Transportations Alternatives Program (TAP) and involves the sections of Main Street downtown, Hwy 56 to South Street.
The HSIP project is lead by the WisDOT. This project will be let in May 2023. Please visit the WisDOT website by clicking here for more information.
