There has been a lot of talk about the need for investment in infrastructures, and while the biggest projects are still at early stages, Wisconsin is seeing a lot of construction activity focused on reinvigorating transport connections and providing the safe road solutions that we all need.
There is a drive for resurfacing that covers all areas of the state this summer, and this significant effort is accompanied by further works to backfill existing bridge structures and other substructures of the roadway.
A concerted effort covering various counties in Wisconsin, including Brown, Door, Fond Du Lac, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Marinette, Outagamie, Winnebago and Shawano. Organized by the Department of Transportation, this represents a huge summer effort to restore Wisconsin highways to acceptable condition and reinvigorate travel within the state.
While resurfacing is a common theme, projects around the state also take in other remedial works as well, including storm sewer reconstruction and renewal, railroad crossing construction and other roadworks that can be carried out during the disruption. For heavy machinery operators, particularly graders and other road construction equipment, this is a fantastic opportunity, with skills in demand for the large number of simultaneous projects.
With various projects launching from May and continuing on to September and beyond, while this road initiative is widespread, collectively it is a huge undertaking for the state. However, that central organization does have its advantages, as Wisconsin is making use of social media to keep road users informed of any disruptions the ongoing works are causing. With a central twitter account, they remind road users of lane restrictions and road closures each day, adding to the smooth running of these projects both for the teams working on site, and for Wisconsin road users looking to avoid any roadwork problems.
While we tend to think of infrastructures work as huge construction endeavors such as the California high speed rail network, the reality is that these state-wide initiatives, that involve hundreds of works on dozens of sites, are where the most dramatic effect will be found for most people’s daily lives. A better, safer road surface to travel on every day as you go to work, school or the grocery run, this is where updated infrastructure leaves its mark on our lives most.
It is also where heavy machinery operators and other skilled construction workers will find long-term employment and create long-lasting, successful careers. By rebuilding infrastructure and providing safer, easier transport for American’s, this construction initiative is helping to deliver the platform that modern America needs for its workforce and industry.
