HOBART (DOT) - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is announcing the opening of the WIS 29 and County FF/Sherwood Street interchange and surrounding roads. The interchange will open to traffic on the evening of Thursday, July 31. This opening is weather dependent. With the opening of the new WIS 29/FF interchange, the intersections of WIS 29 and Sunlite Drive, Greenfield Avenue, and Woodland Road will be permanently closed.

The project includes:

  • A diamond interchange at WIS 29 and County FF/Sherwood Street/Hillcrest Drive, with a bridge carrying the local traffic over WIS 29.

  • Reconstruction of County FF/Sherwood Street/Hillcrest Drive between Shawano Avenue and Navajo Trail with roundabouts at the intersections.

  • Extension of Sunlite Drive to meet County FF at Navajo Trail, providing improved east-west access in the village of Hobart.

  • Aesthetic enhancements include decorative retaining walls, bridge features, railings and lighting.

The $17.1 million project began July 1, 2013 and opened on-time and on-budget. There is still various clean-up, landscaping and median work to complete. Expect various lane closures over the next few weeks.
