Rain pushes back road projects

Rain last week slowed work on completing several intersection projects on State 23, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office, but crews continue to work on finishing the projects.

Weather permitting, final landscaping and the remaining signs will begin installed at County E intersection with State 23 this week. The remaining pavement marking will be installed this week weather permitting. Concrete pavement repairs may begin this week to replace some of the existing defective concrete panels.

The work is part of a $2 million project at the State 23 intersections with County O, E and Pleasant View Road in Plymouth.

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. 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.

Weather permitting, final landscaping and the remaining signs will begin installed this week at the County M intersection with State 23. The remaining pavement marking will also be installed this week. Concrete pavement repairs may begin this week to replace some of the existing defective concrete panels.

The $850,000 project consists of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating this intersection. County M is being constructed into a Jturn 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 is reduced from 65 mph to 55 mph when lane closures are in place. Full closures (except for emergency vehicles) at County M will continue.

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.

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

All work is weather dependent.

HCE holds annual meeting

Family salad recipes were featured at the Sheboygan County Association for Home and Community Education meeting earlier this month.

This was a food sampling event set up in the UW-Extension Sheboygan County meeting rooms by members of HCE. After corrections and adjustments, the recipe booklet will be made available to the public at the Sheboygan County Fair in 2014.

Following the food tasting portion of the program, Alice Walter introduced guest speaker Amy Balint, Sheboygan Teen MOPS coordinator. This is an organization providing support and programs for pregnant and parenting teens. Sheboygan HCE has selected Teen MOPS for this year’s county wide service project.

Ruth Limberg, literacy coordinator, showed the certificate from the state recognizing Sheboygan County HCE for 15 years of participation in the Wisconsin Bookworms literacy project. HCE members read a book every month to all Head Start children in the county. This program provides each child with a copy of that book to take home.

Officers and committee chairs for next year were introduced by Joyce Kuhlow, president, who also presided at the business meeting. Committee members for this event were Alice Walter, Elaine McGinley, and Kay Goking.

This was the HCE Annual meeting to thank supporting members and invite prospective members to join the organization. Members receive a bi-monthly newsletter with program information, volunteer opportunities, special interest meetings, as well as a chance to participate in all HCE activities.

Membership in HCE is open to all residents of Sheboygan County. Monthly education meetings are held the second Monday each month. For more information contact Jane Jensen, family living educator at UWExtension Sheboygan County Family Living, 5 University Dr., Sheboygan. The extension office and meeting rooms are located on the UW Sheboygan campus across from Bookworm Gardens.

 Correction 

A listing in the Oct. 16 issue of The Beacon inadvertently included a Boo Bash Halloween celebration at Sheboygan’s Memorial Mall Saturday, Oct. 26.

Memorial Mall will not be holding the Boo Bash celebration, trick-ortreating or a costume contest this year.
