US 10 closes Monday for box culvert replacements in Manitowoc and Calumet counties

US 10 closed between Brillion and Reedsville


(Manitowoc) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region reminds motorists US 10 will be closed beginning Monday, June 5, 2023 for box culvert replacement. The project is expected to finish at the end of August 2023.


Traffic impacts

US 10 will be CLOSED and DETOURED from County PP in Brillion to County G in Reedsville beginning June 5, 2023. This closure will be in place during all construction operations. US 10 is expected to reopen at the end of August 2023.

  • The box culvert just west of Long Lake Road/US 10 in the town of Brillion in Calumet County will be the first culvert to be constructed.
  • One culvert at a time will be constructed. There will be a hard closure at the culvert location during work.
    • Vehicles will NOT be permitted to pass over the box culvert under construction.
  • Access will be maintained to businesses and properties.



Traffic from the eastbound US 10 will travel north on County PP to County K then east to County G then south to US 10. Vice versa from westbound US 10.


Project improvements

The $584,065 construction contract includes replacing two failing concrete box culverts on US 10 in Manitowoc and Calumet counties. Other work includes grading, guard rail, and pavement marking. The culverts are in two spot locations:

  • Box culvert just west of Long Lake Road/US 10 in the town of Brillion in Calumet County.
    • This is the first box culvert to be replaced during construction.
  • Box culvert just west of County W/US 10 in the town of Maple Grove.
    • Work will begin on this replacement when the first box culvert is complete.


Project Benefits

The existing box culverts are deteriorating. Replacement will ensure adequate drainage to mitigate possible flooding. The new culverts will reduce future maintenance costs.
