Minocqua Area and Northern Wisconsin

Welcome to the Minocqua Area - Nature's Original Water Park. We call it that because it's located in the middle of Northern Wisconsin's Lake Country. Here there are thousands of lakes, rivers and streams that literally saturate the geography. And vacationers have long been visiting the Minocqua Area to enjoy all this water by boating, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and more. There's no admission fees and we're open year round!

Road Construction UPDATE

US 51, Old Hwy 70 - 3rd Avenue, towns of Minocqua and Woodruff (*updated*)

Roadway construction
•    Utility (gas, electric, and telephone) relocation work by Wisconsin Public Service and Frontier Communications continues.
•    Crews plan to continue installation of the temporary traffic signals at the intersections of US 51/WIS 70 west and US 51/County J. The temporary traffic signals are expected to be operational around April 16.  Once the temporary traffic signals are operational, the existing signals and remainder of the traffic islands will be removed. That will be followed by the placement of temporary asphalt at the former island locations, which will allow crews to be able to begin installation of the planned underground water and storm sewer crossings of US 51.
•    Crews plan to begin removal of vacated buildings near Packing Plant Road. These operations are expected to begin April 10 and continue through the week of April 14.
•    Storm sewer work began April 7 and water main work is expected to begin April 21.  These operations are dependent on favorable weather conditions.
Traffic impacts
•    Motorists can expect to encounter a minimum of one lane in each direction throughout most of the work. At times, traffic may be reduced to a single lane with flagging operations. Motorists are reminded to use caution when traveling through the work zone and should plan for delays.

Next public meeting
•    The next construction information meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 10, at the Minocqua Town Hall at 7:30 a.m.
