County road projects updated

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

On the State 32 resurfacing project, asphalt paving will be completed this week. Rumble strips will be started along the shoulders and centerline. Gravel shoulders will be started as well.

The 7.3-mile, $1.9 million project on State 32 from the north limit of the village of Howards Grove to State 57 is scheduled for completion next month.

The project includes milling the existing pavement and overlaying with asphalt. The existing paved shoulders will be widened from three feet 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.

On the State 144 reconditioning project, the curb and gutter will be finished and concrete driveways will begin. Asphalt paving will resume. The 6.85-mile, $5 million project from State 28 in Silver Creek to State 57 in Random Lake is scheduled for completion next month.

Work 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. 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 clean up the jobsite and fix shoulder areas where needed this week. They will remove traffic control. The 6.9-mile, $6.2 million project from the Sheboygan/Manitowoc county line to the State 42/I-43 interchange is scheduled for completion in November.

The project 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.
