Two highway projects ending

Two highway projects in Sheboygan County are expected to be completed this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office in Green Bay.

All major work is expected to be complete this week on the State 32 and State 42 projects in and around the village of Howards Grove. Punchlist work - including cleaning out storm drains, cleaning the roadway, cleaning the sidewalk, and tying up loose ends - is scheduled for this week on both projects.

Crews will be completing the remaining concrete pavement in the median and left turn lanes on State 23 at Pleasant View Road. Concrete curb and gutter will also be poured the beginning of the week, with topsoil, landscaping and permanent signs to be installed in the median by the end of the week at County O and Pleasant View.

The 1.2-mile, $2 million project to rehabilitate State 23 intersections at County O, E and Pleasant View Road, is scheduled through October. The work consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating three intersections along State 23 north of the city of Plymouth, Sheboygan County. Left turn lanes are being constructed in the median of WIS 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/late August. 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. Median lane closures east bound and west bound on State 23 will be in place through Friday, Aug. 23 at noon between State 57 and State 67.

Concrete curb and gutter on the east median J-turn from County M to State 23 is schedule to be poured this week. Crews will be completing the remaining concrete pavement at the east median J-turn, with topsoil, landscaping and signs to follow. If crews are available pavement marking may be installed at each median J-turn east and west of County M.

The State 23/County M intersection rehabilitation project is scheduled through October. Work consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating this intersection. 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 east bound and west bound will be reduced from 65 mph to 55 mph when lane closures are in place. Median lane closures east bound and west bound on State 23 will be in place through Friday, Aug. 23, at noon from Willow Road to east of Hillside Road.

The traffic control on State 57 for the State 23 bridge painting project was set up and the containment construction over the outside lanes and shoulder of State 57 northbound and southbound began last week. This week the containment will be completed and blast cleaning operations will begin.

Work consists of blast cleaning the existing steel bridge girders and painting the girders in a containment structure. State 23 will remain open to traffic with temporary shoulder closures in both directions while the containment is being constructed. State 57 will remain open to traffic with single lane closures in both directions. Work will continue over the weekends, but no night time work is expected.

Both State 23 and State 57 will remain open to through traffic at all times. The outside lanes of both northbound State 57 and southbound State 57 will be closed to traffic. The shoulders on State 23 may have temporary closures for two days while containment is being erected.

On State 57, asphalt milling and paving will also occur between Cleaview Road and County RR. Sign replacement will continue between County W and County K. Pavement marking will continue between County PP and Clearview Road.

The 24-mile, $5 million project from the Sheboygan County – Ozaukee/ Sheboygan County Line to the Manitowoc/Sheboygan County Line, is scheduled through October.

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.
