Road projects continue in county

It’s still summer, so it means there’s still work on three state road projects in the county, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) Northeast Region office in Green Bay.

On the State 144 reconditioning project from State 28 in Silver Creek to State 57 in Random Lake, storm sewer work will continue in Silver Creek. Grading will continue throughout the project. Deck overlays will begin on the structures. Asphalt base widening will finish this week.

The 6.85-mile, $5 million project, scheduled for completion in November, consists 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.

State 144 will be 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 from the Sheboygan/ Manitowoc county line to the State 42/I-43 interchange, the contractor will continue with milling operations and paving of asphaltic binder this week. They will finish up the inside lanes of I-43 northbound and southbound and will begin with the outside lanes.

The 6.9-miles, $6.2 million project should be done in November. It consists of concrete base patching of I-43 mainline, milling two inches of asphalt pavement and placing four inches of new asphalt pavement, ramp resurfacing at the I-43/State 42 interchange, culvert replacement, signing, and pavement marking.

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 in the city of Sheboygan, the contractor will fine grade the base aggregate and place concrete pavement along State 42 (Calumet Drive) northbound lanes this week. They will pave the sidewalk and driveway aprons and place topsoil along North Avenue westbound lanes east of State 42 (Calumet Drive).

The 1.5-mile, $3.3 million project on Calumet Drive from Main Avenue to 26th Street in the city of Sheboygan and from Mueller Road to I-43 includes full reconstruction of State 42 from Main Avenue to 26th Street, a total length of one-half mile, and pavement rehabilitation of State 42 from Mueller Road to I-43, a total length of one mile. Work consists of earthwork and grading, water main, sanitary sewer and storm sewer, base aggregate, concrete pavement, concrete pavement repair, concrete curb and gutter, concrete sidewalk, street lighting, traffic signals, landscaping, pavement markings, and sign replacement.

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.
