Road work slows but doesn’t end

The work week will be shortened for some projects, but work will continue this holiday week on a number of road projects in Sheboygan County.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office Green Bay, crews will continue placing base and grading on the County O north and south sides of State 23. They will then start stripping topsoil at Pleasant View Road on the north side of State 23 and then move to the south side. Grading work will likely begin at Pleasant View.

The project consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating three intersections along State 23 north of the city of Plymouth. The three intersections being reconstructed are: County O, County E and Pleasant View Road.

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 St ate 23) will only be allowed to make a right hand turn movement onto State 23.

Full closures (except for emergency vehicles) of the County O and Pleasant View intersections will continue into mid/late 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 westbound will continue on Monday, July 1 at 6 a.m. from State 67 to State 57. State 23 lane closures will conclude at 12 p.m. Wednesday, July 3 for the July Fourth holiday.

Left hand turns through the median on WIS 23 at these intersections will be restricted to emergency vehicles only. Traffic should utilize County E as a temporary alternate route.

Asphalt pavement removal and replacement with concrete pavement will continue at several locations along State 57 this week.

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.

No work will be performed from noon, July 1 to 6 a.m. July 8. All lanes of traffic will also be open during this period.

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

State 23 east bound and west bound will be reduced from 65 mph to 55 mph when lane closures are in place. Outside (right) lane and outside (right) shoulder closures on State 23 east and west bound begin on Monday, July 1 at 6 a.m. from Willow Road to east of Hillside Road.

State 23 closures will conclude at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3 for the July Fourth holiday. State 23 median lane and shoulder closures may occur if work is completed on the outsides at the J-turn bump-outs.

Asphalt paving in the rural section of State 32 from State 23 to the south village limits of Howards Grove is expected to wrap up this week. Placement of shoulder gravel is expected to follow the completion of paving.

By the Independence Day holiday a paved surface and gravel shoulder should be in place throughout the rural portion of State 32.

Work in the village of Howards Grove will continue with removals of curb and gutter with inlet and manhole rehabilitation the village limits. With the Independence Day Holiday, work will be limited towards the end of the week.

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 during the paving and shoulder operations.

On State 42, a majority of Stage 2 work is expected to be completed this week. Work will begin throughout the village on State 42 with curb gutter removals with adjustments and reconstructions to storm sewer drains and manholes. With the Independence Day Holiday, work will be limited towards the end of the week.

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

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

All work is weather dependent.
