Making streets

Roadwork delays, detours, closures continue throughout county

The Fourth of July holiday is over, but there’s no holiday yet from road work in Sheboygan County.

With work completed last week on the curb and gutter, concrete sidewalk, concrete truck apron and lighting on the State 23/Happy Lane roundabout project, work this week will consist of lighting, concrete sidewalk and grading, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) northeast regional office in Green Bay.

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 later this month.

State 32 is closed to through traffic. A detour is in place using State 23, State 57 and State 28. Through traffic should use the detour. Local traffic will have access to homes and businesses.

During work hours, 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. (+/- an hour), the south project limits (near the Mustard Seed driveway) will be completely closed. During this same time, the temporary access road from Green Acres Drive to State 32 will be closed as well. All access to businesses and homes will be from the north off State 23.


Asphalting was the order of the day last week in the city, as crews put down new surfaces on several streets, including Reed Street, Depot Street and McColm Street. It was all part of this summer’s street work projects in Plymouth.

It was all part of this summer’s street work projects in Plymouth. During non-work hours, the Green Acres Drive temporary access point will be reopened and the barricades at the south project limits will be opened up to allow access to Green Acres Drive to residents who live on Green Acres Drive or E. Happy Lane.

On State 23 this week, the fence contractors will be working on chain link fence on the north side of State 23 and woven wire fence on the south side of State 23. The fence contractors will be installing the fence in the right of way. An electrical contractor will begin installing new highway lighting at State 23 and County M.

This 8.22-mile, $650,000 project on State 23 from State 67 (Plymouth) to State 32 (Sheboygan Falls), is scheduled for completion Sept. 15.

This project 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 both sides of State 23, and the electrical work will occur at the intersection of State 23 and County M. This work will require intermittent closures of the State 23 right shoulder.

On the State 28 (Washington Avenue) reconstruction project in the city of Sheboygan, the contractor will finish placing the concrete pavement and curb and gutter along State 28 (Washington Avenue) westbound mainline and the intersections this week.

They will install the new traffic signal devices. They will place the temporary pavement markings along State 28 (Washington Avenue) westbound mainline and the intersections, and they continued to rehabilitate the Weeden Creek box culvert wing walls.

The 0.49-miles, $4.4 million project will reconstruct the median-divided portion of State 28 through the Interstate 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.

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.

A full listing of lane closures/restrictions can be found on the project website: http:// projects.511wi.gov/wis28/.
