Intersections to open by Nov. 15

The State 23 intersections with County O, County E, Pleasant View Road, and County M in Sheboygan County are expected to completely open by Friday, Nov. 15, according to the state Department of Transportation regional office in Green Bay.

Although these State 23 intersections have been intermittently opened to traffic in recent weeks, additional ongoing pavement repairs on State 23 continue to require partial or total closures of these intersections through mid-November. Motorists should remain alert and use caution, as available movements may change daily.

Once the State 23 intersection work is entirely completed at County O, County E, and Pleasant View Road, drivers will still be able to make right and left turns from State 23 onto those roadways. They will also still be able to make right turns from those side roads onto State 23.

However, in an effort to improve safety and reduce the number of right angle crashes at these intersections, drivers will no longer be able to make a left turn or cross State 23 from these side roads. Drivers wishing to cross the highway or make a left turn from the side road will make a right turn onto State 23 and then complete a U-turn at the next available intersection or interchange.

The State 23 intersection at County M will allow for the same turning movements as the three intersections north of the city of Plymouth. However, drivers wishing to cross the highway or make a left turn from County M will make a right turn onto State 23, but will then be able to make their u-turn (or J-turn) at one of the new State 23 median openings constructed roughly one-third of a mile on either side of County M.

Murray heads state group

Kathryn Murray, director of Plymouth School District Community Education and Recreation, has been named president of the Wisconsin Community Education Association.

The association is a non-profit statewide organization committed to helping communities connect all learners with resources to strengthen every community and school through partnerships and citizen involvement.

Murray, who has been director of Community Ed and Rec since July 2006, has been on the WCEA Board since 2010.

As president, she is responsible for moving forward with the board’s goals of redistricting, holding informational regional meetings throughout the state and increasing membership.

She also will coordinate a quarterly newsletter, an annual conference in November and a retreat this winter, and she will lead other board meetings this year.

This will be a challenging year for community education programs across the state, as they determine the impact of a freeze on their tax levies imposed by the state Legislature, Murray said.

“I am really committed to keeping our members in a positive mood this year; to accept the freeze of our levies and collectively be a strong group together and figure out how we move forward with strong programs,” she said. “I know it is possible to do more with less – because I have seen it happen in this school district.”

I-43 work begins this week

Drivers on Interstate 43 will be dealing with lane closures at Mueller Road north of Sheboygan this month.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office in Green Bay, crews will be removing existing guardrail, re-grading the ditch and installing new guardrail at the Mueller Road underpass during the month of November. The work this week will be in the median of I-43.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in both the northbound and southbound directions during daylight hours.
