Road projects carry on

Summer road projects continue in the county as summer comes to an end, 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, paving will continue this week. Retaining wall work will continue. Curb and gutter will finish. Grading will continue.

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 several intersections.

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 from the Sheboygan/ Manitowoc county line to the State 42/I-43 interchange, the contractor will continue paving the inside shoulder surface coat on southbound I-43 this week. They will continue paving surface coat on the inside lane and shoulder of northbound I-43. They will also place asphaltic shoulder on the ramps of State 42.

The 6.9-mile, $6.2 million project, scheduled for completion in November, 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.
