Road projects back in full swing

The 4th of July holiday is over and work on road projects in Sheboygan County will be back in full swing this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office.

On State 23, the crew is set to complete grading and placing pit run and base at Pleasant View Road early in the week. Storm sewer work will begin at County O and County O/J side roads and then at Pleasant View once the base is complete. Also, removing pavement, excavation and grading will begin in the median at County O and State 23.

The 1.2 miles, $2 million project, to be completed in October, 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 State 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. 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. Lane closures began again Monday at 6 a.m. and continue through Friday 12 at 12 noon for the week.

At the intersection of State 23 and County M, the contractor will begin topsoil stripping and grading the outside “J” turn bump-outs east and west of County M this week. Similarly, topsoil stripping of the median adjacent to the “J” turn bump-out may begin if time allows.

Work consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating this intersectionalongState23.CountyMisbeingconstructedintoaJturn 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 east bound and west bound 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, east and west bound, continue from Willow Road to east of Hillside Road. Lane closures will conclude at 12 noon Friday for the week. State 23 median lane and shoulder closures may occur if work is completed on the outsides at the “J” turn bumpouts.

Weather permitting, it is anticipated that work will continue on repainting the Range Line Bridge over State 23.

This project consists of bridge blasting off existing bridge girders and painting the girders in a containment structure. The Woodland Road and Range Line Road bridges over WIS 23 will have the structural steel repainted. State 23 will remain open to traffic with single lane closures in both directions. Range Line Road will remain open to two-way traffic during bridge painting operations at Woodland Road. Woodland Road will be closed to traffic during bridge painting operations. During closure, Woodland Road will not be detoured. The right lane of State 23 will be closed from State 32 to County Y (Highland Drive). The left lane will maintain a lane width of 12 feet. The temporary barrier will be place in the left lane having motorist encroach upon the rumble strip on the left side of the eastbound inside lane. Speed limits are reduced from 65 mph to 55 mph in the work zone.

Asphalt shoulder removal and replacement will continue between County O and County PP on State 57. Asphalt milling and paving will continue between County O and County RR. Gravel shoulders will be placed between County O and County N.

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.

Drivers are also encouraged to seek information about work zones and detours in the following ways: for statewide, recorded road construction information, 24 hours a day, call 511; for statewide road construction on the World Wide Web, visit www.511wi.gov. All work is weather dependent.
