State 15 closes Monday for roadwork
Segment of road will serve All World Ford
A section of State Highway 15 east of Hortonville will close for five days starting Monday, Oct. 29 at 6 a.m.
A stretch between West Broadway Drive (County Highway JJ) and North Road will be shut down through Friday, Nov. 2.
The purpose of the closure is for permitted work to accommodate the development of the All World Ford car dealership, according to Mark Kantola, communications manager for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Northeast Region.
A contractor will pave shoulders and remove rumble strips.
A signed detour will be in place using State Highway 76, State Highway 96 and U.S. Highway 45.
Local traffic can also find shorter routes using back roads.
The All World Ford car dealership broke ground at N2484 Greenville Drive, Greenville, in July.
The company previously announced the project should be completed by the end of the year.
The dealership is being built on a former agricultural property off State Highway 15 near the County Highway JJ intersection.
The 14.5-acre parcel will hold up to 800 new and used vehicles.
The 50,000-square foot facility will include an 17-stall service department; a 12-stall body shop, including a large down-draft paint booth to accommodate vehicles of any size; a two-story, 10-car showroom; and a touch-free laser carwash. There will be a lounge for customers and play space for children.
The new facility could create 40 jobs.
All World Ford is a vehicle dealership owned by a group consisting of Stu Winarski, Peter Mueller, Terrell Henkel and Chuck Van Horn.
The business is a successor to Mike Murphy Ford, 109 N. Mill St., Hortonville.
Mike Murphy Ford sold to the All World Ford ownership group in January. The dealership continues to operate in Hortonville until the new Greenville facility is completed.
