Stateline-area motorists can expect delays, detours.

Beloit - It's deja vu all over again for Stateline-area motorists.

Another road construction season is upon us, and there is no shortage of projects - large and small - in southern Rock and northern Winnebago counties. Nowhere is the impact more pronounced than in Clinton. On Monday, work began on a $2.33 million state project to reconstruct Wisconsin Highway 140 from Interstate 43 to just south of the village.

"We're going to remove the pavement and curb and gutter from basically the north end of town all the way through town past the DeLong Co. (complex)," said Doug Sina, the state Department of Transportation's project leader. "We will also be replacing the subgrade... giving it a better roadbed structure. And concrete pavement will be laid all the way through the project."

Last summer, the village replaced sewer lines on the same section of road in preparation for this year's project. That work dramatically impacted businesses located along Highway 140.
