I-43 Mosel exit set for work

With one road project wrapped up and two others almost complete, construction work will begin on another road project in Sheboygan County this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

The Interstate 43 town of Mosel event interchange will be the site of a two-week project starting this week, according to the DOT.

Crews will excavate and backfill a stability trench in a location of unstable marsh soils. The existing asphalt pavement will be removed adjacent to the trench. The contractor will prepare this area for new asphalt pavement.

The right shoulder of northbound I-43 will be closed from Garton Road to Rowe Road during this work.

The two-year project on State 57 from the Ozaukee/Sheboygan County line to the Sheboygan/Manitowoc County line is complete, according to the DOT.

Elsewhere, on the State 23 intersection project north of Plymouth, crews should complete the remaining fine grading for curb and gutter on the north and south sides of State 23 at County E. Curb and gutter median islands and curb returns will be poured on the side roads of County E, and then crews will move to the median turn lanes. Outside asphalt shoulder widening, westbound between Pleasant View and County E should be completed this week.

The project consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating three intersections along State 23 at 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. Various lane closures east bound and west bound on State 23 will continue between State 57 and State 67.

At the State 23 intersection with County M, fine grading for the median turn lanes will begin this week, with concrete pavement to follow on Tuesday or Wednesday. The contractor expects to complete the concrete median pavement by the end of the week. Fine grading and concrete curb and gutter should be placed on the south and possibly north side of State 23 on County M.

The project consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating this intersection along State 23. 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.

All work is weather dependent.
