Placement of Emergency Response Numbers

Columbia County ordinance Title 28 states all Emergency Response Number Signs are to be placed approximately five (5) feet to the right (facing the home) of the driveway right-of-way at the edge of the road right-of-way.

The Town of West Point places each Emergency Response Number Signs for each town resident in the correct location.

It is very important NOT to move the Emergency Response Number Sign as emergency (fire and ambulance) look for the signs to be in the correct location.

Upcoming WIS 188 Resurfacing Project

The pavement resurfacing project will consist of replacing 3.5-inches of the asphaltic surface and placing back 3.5-inches of new pavement material. Additional work includes placing new 3/4-inch material along the shoulders and the installation of new pavement markings and signs.  WIS 188 will be closed to all through traffic and this will be expected to last 4-5 weeks starting on September 10th.  A signed detour using WIS 60 and WIS 113 will be in place to reroute traffic.  Access to properties will be provided throughout construction.
