(WLUK) -- Construction begins Tuesday on a stretch of Highway 441 in Outagamie and Calumet counties.
The nearly $9.8 million project runs from Oneida Street to the north junction of Interstate-41.
The project includes pavement and structure repairs, repairing and replacing culverts and storm sewer and guardrail maintenance.
The project aims to extend the life of 441 and improve safety and traffic flow, which will hopefully reduce traffic backups on 441.
There will be a continuous single-lane closure along 441 between County CE and County OO for about three months. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation expects this closure to create significant delays along 441, beginning in August.
For the rest of the project, single-lane closures will occur during the night between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Construction is expected to finish next April.
