Portions of Highway 32 (Douglas Avenue) from Gould to State street are under construction until late November, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

This will make getting downtown a little dicey for those who normally use this route. To make it easier to navigate, we’ll be updating this page over the next several months.

Here’s what to expect:

  • During construction, Douglas Avenue will be limited to southbound traffic only. Northbound traffic will be detoured around construction via Main Street and Goold Street – or – via WIS 38 and Memorial Drive. Southbound traffic will stay on Douglas Avenue and be detoured down to State Street.
  • The 0.2-mile east/west segment of Hamilton Street will be closed between Douglas Avenue and Main Street.
  • Construction activities will be completed in four stages.
  • Bus routes will be detoured.

Upgrades include: 

  • Reconstruct approximately one mile of Douglas Avenue (WIS 32) from Goold Street to Hamilton Street
  • Reconstruct approximately 0.2 miles of Hamilton Street (WIS 32) from Douglas Avenue to Main Street.
  • New sidewalks
  • Updated bicycle and pedestrian accommodations

Douglas Avenue Businesses open for business

A number of area businesses are also offering special deals to customers. So check back often.
