Road projects get started

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Regional Office in Green Bay is providing a weekly update on region construction.

In Sheboygan County, work has begun on the State 57 project with temporary traffic control being setup and installed. Between County K and State 23, asphalt patches will be removed and replaced with concrete. In the area of State 23, work on upgrading the traffic signals will begin.

The 24-mile, $5.0 million project from the Ozaukee/Sheboygan County Line to Manitowoc/Sheboygan County Line is expected to be completed in October

State 57 will remain open to through traffic with single lane closures in areas of work.

Construction from County PP south will allow one lane of traffic in each direction to remain open. North of State 23 will be controlled using flag persons.

The Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department is asking local residents to be aware of the construction and the fact that there may be minor delays. You may want to look at alternate routes to avoid the construction when traveling to and from your destinations.

Sheboygan County Transportation Director Greg Schnell has announced that County MC between County EH and State 32 is closed through Thursday, May 16.

This project will consist of milling, paving, and bridge work. The duration of this closure is weather dependent.

Stamp out Hunger coming

In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for one in six people living in this country, hunger is still a reality.

Today, nearly 50 million Americans, including 17 million children, are struggling with hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.

Fortunately, the United States Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers will once again join forces when they conduct the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

Saturday, May 11, the nation’s more than 200,000 letter carriers will collect food donations in more than 10,000 communities, large and small, and deliver them to local food banks and other hunger relief organizations.

This is the 21st anniversary of the nation’s largest single-day food drive, having collected more than one billion pounds of food since its inception in 1993. In 2012, generous Americans donated more than 70 million pounds of food, which marked the ninth consecutive year that at least 70 million pounds were collected.

Participating in the food drive is easy. Just leave a bag of non-perishable food items, like canned soup, vegetables, fruits, juices, boxed goods, pasta and rice, where the letter carrier normally delivers your mail. The food will then be picked up and delivered to the local food bank.

To learn more about the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, ask a letter carrier, contact your local post office or visit either www.helpstampouthunger.com.
