Road projects still going

Drivers will continue to contend with three major state road projects in the county this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) northeast region office in Green Bay.

On the State 144 reconditioning project, storm sewer removals will begin in Silver Creek this week. Milling the asphalt pavement will begin at State 28 and proceed east. Grading will begin.

The 6.85-mile, $5 million project on State 144 from State 28 in Silver Creek to State 57 in Random Lake is scheduled to finish in November.

Work will consist of milling and resurfacing 6.85 miles of State 144 and widening the travel lanes by two feet, widening shoulders, replacing curb and gutter, replacing storm sewer in Silver Creek, replacing culverts, updating existing beam guard, flattening side slopes, and upgrading a number of intersections.

Here is a summary of the State 144 intersection improvements.

State 28: Updating pavement marking.

County I: Adding right-turn lane and curb returns with increased radius and offset.

County DE: Adding right-turn lane.

County DE/Silver Creek: Adding curb returns with increased radius and offset.

Lone Pine: Adding curb returns with increased radius and offset.

Riverview: Adding curb returns.

Schroeter: Adding curb returns.

Lynn: Adding curb returns with increased radius and offset.

State 144 is closed from Carroll Street to State 28 for the duration of the project. There will be a three-day closure at some point during construction between State 57 and Carroll Street for the box culvert work. Local access to the project will be allowed at various side streets.

The detour is north along State 28, east on County A and south on State 57.

On the Interstate 43 resurfacing project, the contractor will begin base patching of the concrete pavement on the outside lanes of northbound and southbound I-43 this week.

The 6.9-mile, $6.2 million project from the Sheboygan/Manitowoc county line to State 42/I-43 interchange consists of concrete base patching of I-43 mainline, milling 2-inches of asphalt pavement and placing 4-inches of new asphalt pavement, ramp resurfacing at the I-43/State 42 interchange, culvert replacement, signing, and pavement marking. It is scheduled for completion in November.

There will be single lane closures of northbound and southbound I-43 during construction, leaving one lane of traffic open for motorists in various segments of the project work zone. However, lane closures will be removed during peak travel times on the weekend.

Northbound I-43 will be down to a single lane of travel from 6 a.m. Saturday through 12 noon on Friday during construction.

All lanes open from 12 noon Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday during construction.

Southbound I-43 will be down to a single lane of travel from 6 a.m. Monday through 6 a.m. Sunday during construction.

All lanes open from 6 a.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday during construction.

There will be various nighttime closures of the I-43/State 42 interchange ramps for paving operations.

On the State 42 (Calumet Drive) reconstruction project in the city of Sheboygan, this week the contractor will continue grading operations, breaker run placement, base aggregate placement; and they will begin storm sewer installation along State 42 (Calumet Drive) northbound lanes. They will also place concrete pavement along North Avenue westbound lanes east of State 42 (Calumet Drive).

State 42 and North Avenue will remain open to a minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction at all times. Various turning movements will be prohibited at the State 42 and North Avenue intersection at times during construction.
