Milwaukee Street closing ramps up

Work on State 67 (North Milwaukee Street) in the city of Plymouth will reach its most restrictive phase over the next two weeks, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office in Green Bay.

The trimming crew is scheduled to complete the trimming for concrete pavement first thing this week. Weather permitting, concrete paving should begin on Tuesday and continue through the week. Construction staking along the west side for concrete pavement should begin by the end of the week.

The pavement will need to cure for seven days before vehicles are allowed to drive on the new concrete. In addition, access to property owner’s driveways will be restricted during concrete paving and cure time for up to two weeks.

The DOT is asking all to make other arrangements during the next two weeks while concrete paving operations take place.

The 0.84-mile, $3.18 million urban reconstruction project is scheduled for completion in November.

It involves reconstruction of State 67 from the Mullet River to Suhrke Road, resurfacing and repairs to the Mullet River Bridge, and water utility, storm sewer and sanitary sewer reconstruction along with new concrete pavement.

State 67 will be closed to through traffic during construction. Access to local businesses and properties will be maintained. However, several of the side roads to State 67 (North Milwaukee Street) will be closed as work progresses. Residents can utilize Edna and Grove Street to cross State 67 and Krumrey Street to access Marshner and Braun Streets. Alternate access will be maintained as work continues north. The Main Street intersection will remain open to residences and business access only.

State 67 is closed from a point immediately north of the Mill Street (County C) and Caroline Street intersection to Suhrke Road. Traffic is detoured using County C and State 23.

Work also continues this week on another State 67 project at the intersection of State 67 and County PP/Hill and Dale Road and from County PP to Riverbend Drive.

At the intersection of State 67 and County PP/Hill and Dale Road, pavement removals will continue this week, followed by grading and then the construction of the new pavement. Sanitary manholes will be modified to match finish grades along the roadway followed by placement of topsoil and erosion mat.

Along State 67 from County PP to Riverbend Drive, shoulders will be graded for guardrail installation this week.

This project, scheduled for completion Oct. 12, includes pavement removals, asphalt pavement, culvert pipe, storm sewer, curb and gutter, beam guard, signing, pavement marking, and erosion control.

State 67 traffic is detoured on County ZZ, County Z, County C, and State 23 while work is being performed at the intersection of State 67 and County PP.

Mill and overlay work along State 67 from just north of County PP to Riverbend Drive is not anticipated to begin until mid-September and will be open to local traffic entering from the north for the duration of the project.

At the State 23/State 32 interchange, the contractor will pour curb and gutter along with concrete pavement on the north side of the westbound on ramp to State 23.

This projects consists of replacing concrete pavement along with curb and gutter at the intersection of State 23/State 32 interchange westbound on-ramp to State 23 to accommodate oversized/overweight vehicles. Red concrete truck apron will be placed on the back side of the curb and gutter.

All State 32 through lanes and the westbound State 23 on-ramp will remain open to traffic. The northbound median turn lane onto the westbound State 23 ramp will be closed for about two weeks (opening this Thursday or Friday).
