The construction season gets even more interesting when work begins on Ohio Street next week.

Getting around the south side of Racine will take some planning when city crews get to work reconstructing the half-mile of roadway between Washington Avenue and 16th Street, a story in The Journal Times reads.

Ohio Street is two lanes in each direction, and City Engineer John Rooney told the newspaper that one side at a time will be shut down while work is being done. For example, when the northbound lanes are closed, traffic will be diverted west along 16th Street to Highway 31 and north to Washington Avenue.

The total cost of the project is $1.38 million with the state Department of Transportation footing 80 percent of the bill, the story continues. The city’s portion is expected to come in at $276,000.

Shoppers will still have access to Shopko from Ohio Street during the project.

Work is expected to take about three months and the road should be complete before the start of the next school year.
