Road work will continue to disrupt traffic in Falls, Sheboygan

The disruptions from road projects will continue this week for drivers in Sheboygan Falls and Sheboygan, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) northeast regional office in Green Bay.

On the State 32/Happy Lane roundabout project on the north side of Sheboygan Falls, work this week will consist of completing the curb and gutter, concrete sidewalk, concrete truck apron and lighting.

State 32 is closed to all through traffic. A detour is in place using State 23, State 57 and State 28. All through traffic should use the detour.

Local traffic will have access to homes and businesses. Access to all temporary access roads will be open this week.

This $1.3 million project consists of the construction of a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of State 32 and Happy Lane, including storm sewer and street lighting. It is scheduled for completion in July.

On the State 28 (Washington Avenue) reconstruction project in the city of Sheboygan, the contractor this week will finish placing the remaining sections of concrete pavement along State 28 (Washington Avenue) westbound mainline. They will grade, shape and begin to landscape behind the curb and gutter along State 28 (Washington Avenue) westbound and the north ramps, and they will continue to rehabilitate the Weeden Creek box culvert wing walls.

The Interstate 43 southbound off-ramp to State 28 (Washington Avenue) is scheduled to open this week.

The overall project will maintain at least one lane of traffic in each direction on State 28 at all times. Ramp closures will be necessary (one at a time) when reconstructed, and detours for those closures will be provided (except for the two-night closure on the northbound on ramp). County A and Taylor Drive will remain open to one lane of traffic in each direction at all times. However, Taylor Drive will have frequent turning movement restrictions.

This 0.49-miles, $4.4 million project on State 28 (Washington Avenue) from Prange Road to approximately 750 feet east of Taylor Drive, along with the intersection of State 28 (Washington Avenue) and South 32nd Street, is scheduled for completion in October.

This project will reconstruct the mediandivided portion of State 28 through the I-43 interchange (including the Taylor Drive intersection), reconstruct the bottom portion of the I-43 ramps, overlay the westerly transition of State 28 from four to two lanes with new asphaltic pavement, replace the existing asphaltic shoulders with new asphaltic pavement between Prange Road and I-43, provide new traffic signals and lighting at County A, the I-43 ramp termini, and Taylor Drive, and provide a new sidewalk on the south side of State 28 from the Deer Trace entrance to Greenwing Drive.

A full list of lane closures and restrictions is available on the project website, http://

On the State 23 fencing project, the contractor will continue work in the right of way of westbound State 23, from State 32 to State 67, this week. The contractor will be installing right-of-way fence in a westbound direction on the north side of the road.

This 8.22-mile, $650,000 project, scheduled for completion Sept. 16, involves the installation of right of way fencing and some chain link fence along both sides of State 23 from State 67 to State 32. The project also includes the installation of new lighting at State 23 and County M.

The fencing work will take place in the right of way along State 23. However, this work will require intermittent closures of the right hand shoulder for construction vehicles to gain access to the right of way with equipment and materials.
