Marquette Road construction starts on Monday, May 5

Work is ready to begin May 5 on the Marquette Road project in Prairie du Chien.

The project will involve the reconstruction of nearly one mile of the four-lane Marquette Road, from Mooney Street north to Washington Street. During the time the project is underway, there will be several detour routes for motorists to follow. Once completed, Marquette Road will feature three roundabouts, at Blackhawk Avenue, Iowa Street and Wisconsin Street. (In 2017, Marquette Road will once again be under construction and become three lanes from Mooney Street south to La Pointe Street.)

For more information, please contact City Administrator Aaron Kramer at 326-6406 or

Public meetings with the city, Department of Transportation and contractor (H. James and Sons) will be held every other Wednesday, starting on May 7 at 2:30 p.m. in the Community Room at City Hall. These meetings will give impacted and concerned businesses the opportunity to have their questions and concerns addressed regarding the project.

“With the possibility that this project will not be entirely completed in 2014, we want to make sure the flow of information to everyone affected is very clear,” Kramer said. “I would also like to remind people that if they cannot attend meetings, they can email, call or stop by my office to have their concerns and questions addressed.”
