Construction barrels

Here’s what to know for this week:

Road work continues on Highway 35

HUDSON Street construction will continue on Highway 35 through downtown Hudson and into North Hudson. The project is scheduled to last through November. 

No work is planned this week for the downtown area from Coulee Road to Vine Street. City of Hudson, WisDOT and the contractor have agreed to hold off on concrete work in the area to prevent any potential impacts to Booster Days. 

This week, crews will be paving a trail in front of the wastewater treatment plant, pedestrian ramps at Coulee Road intersection and parking lot restoration. Crews will also be finishing sanctuary swerve work between St. Croix and Division streets. Water and sanitary sewer services will begin between those two streets. Crews will finish grading and pour curb between Myrtle and St. Croix streets. 

In North Hudson, crews will work on grading between Monroe Street and Michaelson Street.
