(August 17, 2023) The first phase of the CSAH 15 reconstruction project west of Lake Reno will be coming to a close for 2023 in the coming days.
The project detour route utilizing State Highway 29 along County Road 88 on the north end and County State Aid Highway 28 on the south end will be lifted and the road opened to through traffic by Monday, August 21.
This reconstructed stretch of CSAH 15 between CSAH 28 and the Pope-Douglas County Line has been closed to through traffic for much of this summer.
The final work for 2023, striping of the roadway, is set for completion on Friday, August 18, with opening of through traffic to follow when completed.
The first phase of the project in 2023 consisted of removal of the existing pavement, culvert replacements, reconstruction of the roadbed, and initial bituminous pavement surfacing.
The second phase of the project will be completed during the 2024 construction season, and includes final paving and shouldering work.
