Blood Drive at Generations

The Monday, July 28, Blood Drive will be held at Generations just off of Highland avenue between Eastern Avenue and State 23. This will be the fourth of six blood drives being held throughout the year. The hours will be from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m.

The BloodCenter of Wisconsin currently is looking to fill its quotas for the extra use of blood products.

The drive is co-sponsored by the Plymouth Lions and the Plymouth American Legion Post 243 and hosted by the BloodCenter of Wisconsin, a non-profit organization that supplies the blood for use in over 50 Wisconsin hospitals as well as Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center, Froederts Children’s Hospital and the Aurora Surgery Center, Plymouth.

The groups have set a goal of 50 donations throughout the day - if you are busy you may call and get an appointment go to www.bcw.edu/Plymouth or call 1-877-232-4376 and mention the Plymouth Blood Drive. The Blood Center also stresses that walk-ins are very welcome.

It takes roughly an hour to go through the donation process. You need to be healthy, have a driver’s license or a photo ID and the ability to give some medical information.

Mark your calendar for the other Blood Drives throughout the year. They will all be held on Mondays, with the remaining dates Sept. 29 and Nov. 24.

Please be a hero and donate. Your donation could be the most valuable gift you ever give - just ask anyone who has ever received.

County homeless to be counted

The Sheboygan County Housing Coalition will be joining homeless coalitions around the state in completing a local count July 30 of individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Staff and volunteers will count persons in shelters for the night as well as persons residing on the streets, in campgrounds, under bridges, or similar places.

The collected data will assist the community in understanding the scope and size of local homelessness, engage in program and service development, and apply for state and federal funding

The Sheboygan County Housing Coalition is comprised of Lakeshore Cap, The Salvation Army, Safe Harbor, and other organizations committed to eliminating homelessness and improving housing options in Sheboygan County.

Road projects roll on

Summer continues this week, and so does work on several road projects in the county.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, deck sealing operations will continue this week on any remaining structures along State 42, State 67, State 57, State 23 and State 32 in Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties. Most of the bridge decks in Manitowoc and Sheboygan Counties have been completed.

This project involves cleaning bridge decks and applying a concrete sealer to protect the structure and increase the life span of the bridge deck. There will be night work at various high traffic locations. There will be some weekend work on less traveled highways.

On the State 23/County Y project in Kohler, painting operations will continue this week over the right lane of eastbound State 23. Deck preparation and concrete surface repairs will continue on the northbound County Y structure. Crews will pour concrete overlay on the northbound County Y structure and median concrete pavement at the State 23 ramp intersection on County Y.

The 0.23-mile, $2 million project at the State 23 and County Y interchange, consists of bridge painting, concrete deck surface repairs, joint repairs and a concrete deck overlay for the County Y bridge over State 23, pavement replacement on the on/off-ramps at State 23 and County Y interchange, and on County Y between the on/off-ramps.

State 23 on-ramps from County Y will be closed through mid-August, when the project is scheduled for completion. County Y will be reduced to one lane in each direction. There may also be single-lane closures on State 23 in the westbound and eastbound directions.
