Work continues on state highways

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

Fine grading for curb and gutter on the north and south sides of State 23 at County E will begin this week. Pouring concrete curb and gutter will follow the fine grading. Median fine grading for the concrete pavement turn lanes on State 23 at County E are also scheduled for this week. Crews should pour concrete pavement for one of the median turn lanes by week’s end.

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 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.

At these intersections traffic is able to access east bound State 23 from the south and west bound State 23 from the north, right turn only. Traffic on State 23 is allowed to exit north or south at these two intersections. There will be various lane closures east bound and west bound on State 23 between State 57 and State 67.

Fine grading for curb and gutter on the north and south sides of State 23 at County M will begin this week. Pouring concrete curb and gutter will follow the fine grading. Median fine grading for the concrete pavement turn lanes on State 23 at County M is also scheduled for this week. Crews should pour concrete pavement for one of the median turn lanes by week’s end.

The project consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating the intersection of State 23 and County M. 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. 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.

The project completion is scheduled for Oct. 18. 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.

No work is scheduled this week on the State 57 project from the Ozaukee/ Sheboygan county line to Manitowoc/Sheboygan county line.

State 57 remains open to through traffic.

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.

State Patrol warns of phone scam

Wisconsin State Patrol officials are warning about a phone scam in which a caller identifies himself as a sergeant from the State Patrol Green Bay office and asks for money to resolve a car crash involving a relative of the person called.

The State Patrol has received information that people on at least two occasions were called by a man who identified himself as “Sergeant Walker of the State Patrol office in Green Bay.” The fake sergeant asked for $900 to pay for damages caused by the person’s child or grandchild in a crash. The fake sergeant said the money, which needed to be wired immediately, would fix the damages so the other driver would not press charges.

“The phone message is a scam, and the State Patrol under no circumstances would contact anyone with such a request for money,” says Maj. Brian Rahn, director of the Bureau of Field Operations. “If you receive a scam phone call like this, please notify the State Patrol Northeast Region— Fond du Lac Post at (920) 929-3700.”

The State Patrol has investigated the calls, and the scam likely originated in Montreal, Canada.

More information about this type of scam is available online from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection at http:// datcp.wi.gov/uploads/Consumer/pdf/SeniorsGrandparentsScam464.pdf.

 Correction 

The story in Thursday’s Review on the Plymouth School Board meeting incorrectly reported the increase in the property tax rate for the 2013- 14 school budget at 39 cents per $100,000 of assessed valuation. The increase will be 39 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation, or $39 on a home valued at $100,000.
