State 144 project wrapping up

Another summer road project in Sheboygan County has come to an end, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) northeast region office in Green Bay.

On the State 144 reconditioning project, the detour was scheduled to be removed last Tuesday, but damage to highway marking equipment postponed pavement marking until a new marking unit could be brought on site.

Once that is done, the contractor will complete minor punch list items this week.

The 6.85-mile, $5 million project on State 144 from State 28 in Silver Creek to State 57 in Random Lake included 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.

On State 42 (Calumet Drive) in the city of Sheboygan, the contractor this week will finish installing the permanent traffic signals and remove the temporary signals at the State 42 and North Avenue intersection. They will finish work on the street lighting along State 42 (Calumet Drive) from Main Avenue to 27th Street. They will place the remaining concrete within the right turn island in the southeast quadrant of State 42 and North Avenue intersection. They will install the remainder of the signs throughout the project.

The 1.5-mile, $3.3 million project on Calumet Drive from Main Avenue to 26th Street in the city of Sheboygan, and from Mueller Road to I-43, 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 1 mile.

The 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. Various turning movements will be prohibited at the State 42 and North Avenue intersection at times during construction.
