Road projects winding down

Major highway projects in the county are coming closer to an end, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) northeast region office in Green Bay.

In Sheboygan County, permanent pavement marking will be completed and final project clean-up will take place on the State 32 resurfacing project.

The 7.3-mile, $1.9 million project on State 32 from the north limit of the village of Howards Grove to State 57 includes milling the existing pavement and overlaying with asphalt. The existing paved shoulders were widened from three feet to five feet and shoulder gravel was added. Shoulder and centerline rumble strips were 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.

Asphalt paving will finish this week on the State 144 reconditioning project. Restoration will finish. Shoulder work will finish. Pavement marking and permanent signing will begin.

The $5 million project on State 144 from State 28 in Silver Creek to State 57 in Random Lake consisted 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 Interstate 43, all lanes opened for travel Thursday, Oct. 19.

The 6.9-mile, $6.2 million project from the Sheboygan/Manitowoc county line to the State 42/I-43 interchange included 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 42 (Calumet Drive) reconstruction project in the city of Sheboygan this week, the contractor will finish hand pouring the side road connections, continue placing concrete sidewalk and driveway aprons and continue work on the street lighting between Main Avenue and 26th Dtreet. They will also continue work on the permanent traffic signals at the State 42 (Calumet Drive)/ North Avenue and the State 42/County J/DL intersections.

The 1.5-mile, $3.3-million project included full reconstruction of State 42 from Main Avenue to 26th Street, a total length of onehalf 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 remain open to a minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction at all times.

Motorists are advised to use caution and remain alert when driving through any work zone.

All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
