Sweet harmonies in park

Hometown Harmony Tradition will be on the stage of the Howard Stoll Family Band Shell at Plymouth City Park Thursday, June 27 at 7 p.m. for the next City Park Summer Concert.

For more than 40 years, Hometown Harmony Tradition, the Plymouth chapter, has been singing in the local area. This year, the chapter celebrates a landmark occasion: the 75th anniversary of the founding of the National Barbershop Harmony Society.

Hometown Harmony Tradition plays an active role in the local arts community. Founded in 1969, the chorus’ 25 singers come from 13 communities in a four-county area. They stage an annual show and perform throughout the year at local events.

Redeemer Lutheran Church will provide concessions.

Road work continues in area

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office in Green Bay is providing a weekly update on road construction in Sheboygan County.

On State 23 at County O, E and Pleasant View Road, crews will continue concrete removal and grading of the County O and Pleasant View intersections north and south sides of WIS 23.

Left turn lanes are being constructed in the median of State 23 at each of these locations. These turn lanes will restrict the traffic that will be able to cross State 23. Traffic approaching from the north or south (attempting to cross State 23) will only be allowed to make a right hand turn onto State 23.

Full closures (except for emergency vehicles) of the County O and Pleasant View intersections will continue into mid-July. The public is not allowed to access State 23 on or off at these intersections. The outside (right) lane and outside (right) shoulder closures on State 23 east and west bound will continue from State 67 to State 57.

State 23 closures will conclude at 12 noon Friday June 28 for the week. Left hand turns through the median on State 23 at these intersections will be restricted to emergency vehicles only. Traffic should utilize County E as a temporary alternate route.

At the State 23 – County M intersection the contractor will mobilize to the project site and begin topsoil stripping and grading the outside J-turn bump-out east and west of County M. Similarly, topsoil stripping of the median adjacent to the J-turn bump-out may begin if time allows.

County M is being constructed into a J-turn intersection. Left hand turn lanes are being constructed in the medians at this location. These turn lanes will restrict the traffic that will be able to cross State 23. Traffic approaching from the north or south (attempting to cross State 23) will only be allowed to make a right hand turn movement onto State 23.

State 23 eastbound and westbound will be reduced from 65 mph to 55 mph when lane closures are in place. State 23 outside (right) lane and outside (right) shoulder closures on State 23 east and west bound begin on Monday, June 24 at 6 a.m. from Willow Road to east of Hillside Road. State 23 closures will conclude at 12 noon Friday June 28 for the week. State 23 median lane and shoulder closures may occur if work is completed on the outsides at the J-turn, bump-outs.

On State 32 asphalt paving in the rural section from State 23 to the south village limits of Howards Grove will take place this week. By the end of this week State 32 will have a final surface paved with pavement markings installed.

Restoration work will be taking place throughout the rural section of State 32 in the right turn lane expansion areas. Work in the village of Howards Grove at the intersections of County A and State 32 and State 32 and State 42 will continue with concrete curb and gutter installation and concrete sidewalk. Removals of curb and gutter with inlet and manhole rehabilitation is expected to begin throughout the village limits.

This project involves the resurfacing of State 32. The road will be milled and resurfaced with increasing more right turn lane capacity at intersection of County O, Woodland Road, County J, and Playbird Road. In the village of Howards Grove some drainage structures will be reconstructed or adjusted and curb and gutter sections will be replaced.

The work involves removals, grading, base, asphalt pavement, storm sewer, sanitary sewer manholes, erosion control, permanent signing, traffic control, pavement marking, restoration and all necessary items to complete the work.

State 32 and all side roads will be open to all traffic during construction using flagging operations suitable for lane closure. Drivers are advised to be prepared to stop with the paving operations going on. The shoulders near the intersections at County O, Woodland Road, County J, and Playbird Road remain closed. Bumps are marked with signs warning drivers of the hazard ahead. Please use caution.

On State 42, work will continue at the intersection of State 32 and 42 with concrete curb and gutter installation and concrete sidewalk. Removals of curb and gutter with inlet and manhole rehabilitation is expected to begin throughout the Howards Grove village limits.

State 42 and all side roads will be open to all traffic during construction using flagging operations suitable for lane closure.

On State 57, asphalt shoulder removal and replacement will occur between County O and County PP this week. Asphalt pavement removal and replacement with concrete pavement will continue at several locations throughout the project.

State 57 will remain open to through traffic. Between County K and County O, single lane closures will occur in areas of work. Between County O and State 32, work will be completed using flagging operations.

Motorists are advised to use caution and remain alert when driving through any work zone.
