To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Governor Evers signs a $3.97 million contract to improve over eight miles of US 8 from US 141 in the town of Pembine to Old County A Road in the town of Dunbar. The project begins Thursday, July 15, 2021, and is expected to conclude by the end of September this year. The highway will remain open during construction.  Construction includes resurfacing of US 8 in the work zone by milling and overlaying with hot mix asphalt.  US 8 will remain open during construction with lane closures and flagging operations. There may be short durations when access to side streets and driveways are restricted for pavement operations.
