To invest in Wisconsin's transportation system, Governor Evers signed a $6.59 million contract to improve WIS 35 from US 63 in Hager City to Coulee Creek (1200th street) in the town of Oak Grove. Work which began on July 15, 2019.

Monarch Paving is the prime contractor for the project. Improvements include asphalt pavement milling and replacement, asphalt shoulders, beam guard replacement, and culvert pipe work.

During paving operations, motorists on WIS 35 can expect to encounter flagging operations and single lane closures.

Construction is scheduled for completion by November 2019. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction progress.
