I-43 median projects continues

Work continues this week on the Interstate 43 median cable barrier project from Wilson Lima Road to Fischer Creek Road in Sheboygan and Manitowoc counties, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) Northeast Region office in Green Bay.

The contractor will continue grading and shaping in the north segment from County Line Road to Fischer Creek Road. The contractor will also be performing landscaping restoration in the south segment from Wilson Lima Road to Stahl Road.

The 6.27-mile, $1.64 million project is due to be completed Aug.

The project will install median cable barrier in the project limits and place a high-friction polymer overlay on the I-43/County EE (Weeden Creek Road) overpass.

Various bridge surface repairs and concrete masonry deck repairs will also take place. There are three segments in different locations where the cable barrier is being installed on I-43.

The south segment starts at Wilson Lima Road and ends at the structures over County Hwy EE/Weeden Creek Road. The middle segment starts at County Hwy MM and ends at Orchard Road. The north segment starts at County Line Road and ends at Fischer Creek Road.

Single-lane closures will occur with the left lane closed in both the northbound and southbound directions on I-43 to work in the median. Work restrictions will occur at different days/times throughout the week, where all traffic control devices will be removed and all lanes of travel will be open to traffic during peak hours.

Lane closures may switch from left lane closures to right lane closures when the structure work takes place.

There is no detour.
