One done, three to go.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) northeast region office in Green Bay, work will wrap up this week on the Interstate 43 resurfacing project from the Sheboygan/ Manitowoc county line to the State 42/I-43 interchange.

This week will see the removal of all traffic control devices on the 6.9-mile, $6.2 million project that saw concrete base patching of the 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.

On the State 32 resurfacing project from the north limit of the village of Howards Grove to State 57, asphalt paving has been completed. Work has begun on rumble strips along the shoulders and centerline as well as gravel shoulders.

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 3 feet to 5 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 remain open to traffic except with temporary lane closures using flagging operations in the immediate area of work.

On the State 144 reconditioning project from State 28 in Silver Creek to State 57 in Random Lake, asphalt paving will continue this week. Shoulder work will begin. Restoration 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.

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

They will install conduit for the street lighting and begin grading for sidewalk. The contractor will continue concrete joint repair work along the outside lanes of State 42 between Mueller Road and I-43.

The 1.5-mile, $3.3 million project 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.
