Salvation Army needs bell ringers

The Salvation Army of Plymouth needs bell ringers to help us meet this year’s goal during its Christmas Red Kettle Campaign.

This year, the Plymouth Salvation Army is reaching out to the community, more than ever, for bell ringers, so they can continue to help families, friends, and neighbors that need their assistance.

In the past, only about 50 percent of kettle shifts have been filled. In order to reach this year’s goal, the Salvation Army need to increase our bell ringer participation. To help the Salvation Army help others sign up to bell ring online at: www.sheboyganwi.volunteerfirst.org. or by calling Deb at 920-528-8465.

Here are a few ideas how you can help the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign:

• Introduce a friend to the experience and invite them to ring with you. It is easy and fun to ring as a team.

• A “Special kettle” stand is a great way to encourage donations. Each year kettles pop up at corporate parties, wedding receptions and church gatherings. Where would you like a kettle to be placed?

• Encourage your company to join the effort this holiday by joining our “Adopt-A-Kettle”campaign. Your organization agrees to take one kettle and gather enough ringers for at least one day at one location.

• Call us to discuss one of these ideas or to simply sign up to bell ring. Please call our kettle Coordinator Deb, at 920-528-8465

Road projects near completion

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

On State 23, crews will continue this week with topsoil, landscaping and signs at the County E intersection. Final pavement marking will also be installed this week at County O, County E and Pleasant View intersections. Gravel shouldering and rumble strips will be completed this week along State 23 in the shoulder widening areas. State 23 median asphalt safety islands will be paved at County E, along with topsoil and landscaping.

The project on State 23 at County O, E and Pleasant View Road consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating three intersections along State 23. 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. However, County O and Pleasant View intersections are open to the public. At these intersections traffic is able to access eastbound State 23 from the south and westbound 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, crews will continue this week with topsoil, landscaping and signs at the County M intersection and J-turns. Final pavement marking will be installed this week at County M and the east and west J- turns. Gravel shouldering and rumble strips will be completed this week along State 23 in the shoulder widening areas. State 23 median asphalt safety islands will be paved at County M, along with topsoil and landscaping.

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.

On State 57, work will continue with replacing endwalls on culvert pipes and additional grading at multiple culvert locations.

State 57 will remain open to through traffic. Between County K and County O, single lane closures or shoulder closures will occur in areas of work. Between County O and State 32, work will be completed using shoulder closures.

Motorists are advised to use caution and remain alert when driving through any work zone. 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.
