The John Deere sign in front of Riesterer & Schnell’s Hortonville location, N2225 Greenville Drive/WI Hwy 15, will be temporarily removed for utility work this Summer, as the DOT prepares for the WI Hwy 15 expansion.
Although the sign will be temporarily removed, the Hortonville location will remain open throughout the expansion. The sign will be replaced when construction clears the store.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, construction on the highway is scheduled for 2018 and will increase safety by expanding 11 miles of WI Hwy 15 to a four-lane divided highway. The project includes roundabouts in two locations, a potential recreational trail and will result in a new entrance to Riesterer & Schnell off North Road.
The expansion is predicted to enhance economic development and lower transportation costs in the region, as WI Hwy 15 is the primary route between New London and the Fox Cities for many commuters.
