[ARCHIVED] Portion of Highway S to close for railroad crossing work beginning Oct. 27

Highway S project logo

Railroad crossing work will cause a roughly 10-day closure of a portion of Kenosha County Highway S beginning Tuesday, Oct. 27.

The stretch of Highway S between Highway 31 (Green Bay Road) and Highway H (88th Avenue) will be closed to through traffic during this time.

Crews will be replacing the Union Pacific crossing just east of Highway EA (72nd Avenue), expanding it to align with the newly widened Highway S.

While a hard closure of Highway S will be in place at the crossing, residents and businesses will retain access to their properties — from the west for properties located west of Highway EA, and from the east for those east of the railroad tracks.

Traffic is urged to use a posted detour around the work area via Interstate 94, Highway 158 (52nd Street) and Highway 31. This is the same detour route that is in place for a long-term closure that continues on Highway S between Highway N (38th Street) and the I-94 East Frontage Road.

The Highway S project, which began in the spring, involves expanding the road into a four-lane, divided highway between Highway 31 and the East Frontage Road. Other enhancements include additional turn lanes, new traffic signals, improvements to drainage and the addition of an off-road, multiuse path for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Work will continue through late 2021, with a break during the winter months.
