Sheriff investigating car thefts

The Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department is investigating four auto thefts over the space of less than two months from several locations around the county.

The department is also investigating 16 car entries from several areas of the county recently.

According to a press release from Capt. David Adams, the vehicles were reported stolen July 15, July 27, Aug. 23 and Sept. 10 from locations just outside the city of Sheboygan Falls, Howards Grove, Elkhart Lake and the village of Cascade.

The first three were recovered abandoned in the city of Milwaukee. A 2003 red Dodge Caravan, license plate 688HRM, stolen in Cascade has not been located.

Credit and debit cards taken in some of the 16 car entries under investigation have been used in the city of Milwaukee. During one vehicle entry, two handguns were stolen, according to Adams.

In nearly all of the vehicle entries, and in the case of all four stolen vehicles, the vehicles were left unlocked, with the keys left in the ignition of the four stolen vehicles.

The Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department is asking Sheboygan County citizens to take the keys and valuables out of their vehicles. If a person is seen entering yours or another vehicle, call your local law enforcement immediately.

Anyone with information on the car theft or entries should contact the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department at (920) 459-3114 or CrimeStoppers at (877) 283-8436 or online at www.cuffthem.com.

Road projects in final phases

State roadwork projects in Sheboygan County are entering their final month, but will continue to cause traffic disruptions until then, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office in Green Bay.

Fine grading for the median and/or outside turn lanes will begin this week on the State 23 intersection project north of the city of Plymouth. Crews should install concrete pavement for the two outside turn lanes on State 23 at County E. Fine grading for curb and gutter on the north and/ or south side of State 23 may begin by the end of the week. Crews should also begin removing and asphalt paving the shoulder widening between County E and Pleasant View Road.

The 1.2-mile, $2 million project to rehabilitate and upgrade the intersections at County O, County E and Pleasant View Road is scheduled to be completed in October.

Work consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating the three intersections. 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) at County E will continue through mid-October. However, County O and Pleasant View intersections are open to the public. Various lane closures east bound and west bound on State 23 between State 57 and State 67 will then be in place Monday through Friday.

Crews should begin fine grading for concrete paving the median turn lanes of State 23 at County M this week. Fine grading may also begin for the side roads north and south of State 23 at County M.

The project, to create a J-turn intersection at State 23 and County M, is scheduled for completion Oct. 18.

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. Full closures (except for emergency vehicles) at County M will continue through mid-October. Traffic on County M approaching State 23 from the south and the north will not be allowed to access State 23, and traffic on State 23 will not be able access County M. These movements will be restricted to emergency vehicles only.

Traffic can utilize Willow Road to the west or Hillside Road to the east of County M as temporary alternate routes. Various lane closures east bound and west bound on State 23 will continue between Willow Road and Hillside Road.

On State 57, grading will be completed at the new beam guard locations and at median location between Clearview Road and County K.

State 57 remains 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.
