State 57 road work returns Monday

by Emmitt B. Feldner of The Review staff

PLYMOUTH - One of the signs of summer will return to Sheboygan County Monday - road construction and orange barrels.

Crews from Northeast Asphalt in Greenville will begin work on the second phase of the reconstruction of State 57 from the State 32 intersection in Manitowoc County to the south county line in Sheboygan County.

According to the state Department of Transportation, the project will include a new pavement surface, curb and gutter, centerline rumble strips, traffic signals, signing and beam guards.

State 57 and all intersecting roads will remain open during construction, with occasional lane restrictions - except during holidays and special events.

There will also be lane restrictions with single lane traffic controlled by flaggers on State 57 north of State 23.

The project is scheduled for completion by November.

The $5 million, 29-mile project was given final approval by Gov. Scott Walker earlier this month.

This is the second phase of a two-year project on State 57.

The work last year included replacing culvert pipes and inlet structures, repairing the bridge deck over the Onion River on the northbound lanes of State 57 in Waldo, turn lane and signal improvements at the State 57/County C intersection in Plymouth, repairing bridge walls on State 23 over the Sheboygan River near County TT, and repaving slopes at the State 57/State 23 interchange in Plymouth.

While the work last year included some projects along State 23, all of the work this year will be limited to State 57.

Crews will repave one lane in each direction this year, leaving the other lane open for traffic.

The city will see another major state road project in 2014, when the DOT repaves and reconstructs State 67 through the city of Plymouth.

That work is scheduled for May through October and will be done in phases, according to the DOT.

The first phase will be repaving from County PP to just north of Riverbend Drive. That will be followed by a complete reconstruction of the rest of State 67 as far as Suhrke Road. That part of the work will be done in several phases to enable fire trucks to enter and exit the fire station along Caroline Street.

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use caution and remain alert when driving through this or any work zone.
