Road projects continue in county

The calendar says fall, but the weather and ongoing road projects still say summer.

Work on four highway projects in the county continues this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) northeast region office in Green Bay.

On the State 32 resurfacing project from the north limit of the village of Howards Grove to State 57, milling, shoulder removal, and asphalt paving will continue this week, beginning at State 32/57 and continue south to County FF.

The 7.3-mile, $1.9 million project includes milling the existing pavement and overlaying with asphalt. The existing paved shoulders will be widened from three to five feet and shoulder gravel will be added. Shoulder and centerline rumble strips will be installed along with new pavement marking.

State 32 and side roads will remain open to traffic except with temporary lane closures using flagging operations in the immediate area of work. Short-term shoulder closures will be set up to accommodate shoulder removal operations.

On the State 144 reconditioning project from State 28 in Silver Creek to State 57 in Random Lake, grading in Silver Creek will finish this week. Curb and Gutter will continue. Structure surface repair will continue.

The $5 million project 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 begin placement of the permanent centerline striping and grinding of the rumble strips this week.

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.

They will continue work on storm sewer laterals and sanitary sewer upgrades along State 42 (Calumet Drive) southbound lanes, Main Avenue and North Avenue. They will continue concrete joint repair work along the inside lanes of State 42 between Mueller Road and I-43.
