Traffic Alert: Street closures Downtown Wausau near Sears on June 1st

May 31, 2021

Fifth Street and Washington Street in Downtown Wausau will be closed periodically on Tuesday, June 1, from about 8 a.m. to noon while construction crews take down the east side of the Sears building.

A flagger will be on site to direct traffic and stop vehicles briefly or they may reroute vehicles around the Wausau Center Mall if needed. The construction team anticipates this to be a minor inconvenience.

Watch demolition videos here.
