Move-In starts this week at UW Oshkosh and the road construction will continue along with move-in. We’re asking community members who aren’t moving in to avoid the UW Oshkosh campus from Aug. 31st to Sept. 4th as we move in nearly 2500 resident students.


Beginning today, Monday, Aug. 29, Algoma is expected to be closed to all access including local traffic between Woodland and Congress avenues. Access may be closed for up to five weeks while paving is completed on the road, sidewalk and driveways. 


From Wisconsin Street to Woodland, construction is still in progress with parking bays, curb and gutters and electrical for light poles. To stay safe as construction vehicles continue to move in and out of the area, pedestrians should look both ways and cross Algoma only at the designated crosswalks. Please do not walk or ride bicycles north-south along the newly paved portions of Algoma. 


High Avenue continues to temporarily accommodate two-way traffic between Osceola St and W. New York Ave 


Restoration and landscaping is expected to be completed this week in the walkway area from Reeve Union to the Student Rec Center.


The intersection of Congress and Algoma has been restored with temporary pavement and has reopened to east-west traffic. Caution is still advised in this area, as construction equipment will continue to go in and out of the adjacent section of Algoma and Congress. 


Lane restrictions also are expected to begin Aug. 29 and continue for three weeks for a section of Wisconsin from Church Avenue to High to accommodate pavement removal and electrical work.  


Detours continue for GO Transit bus routes No. 5 and No. 10. Find details in the GO Transit app or on Go Transit’s Facebook page.


More information about the Algoma Boulevard Project also is available online. If would like to receive project updates from the city of Oshkosh, please send a blank email to
