Two road projects in progress on I-43

Work continues on two projects on Interstate 43 in Sheboygan County this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Regional Office in Green Bay.

At the town of Mosel event interchange, scheduled for completion July 24, the contractor plans to continue grading and base aggregate operations. Marsh excavation will resume this week.

The project involves grading, base aggregate, foundry sand, asphalt paving, pavement marking, a ramp gate, and incidentals to complete the work on the southbound on-ramp.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane on I-43 southbound from Orchard Road to one mile south of Rowe Road from 6 a.m. Mondays to 2 p.m. Fridays. I-43 northbound will be reduced to one lane from one mile south of Orchard Road to Orchard Road from 6 a.m. Mondays to 12 p.m. Fridays. Rowe Road will remain open to traffic.

Asphalt paving will be completed this week on the I-43 project from the south county line to State 42, with the paving of County V under I-43 early in the week. The shouldering will also be completed this week both on I-43 and on County V. Beam guard adjustments in the southbound lanes of I-43 will be completed this week. All pavement marking and grooved in reflective tape will be done this week, with the exception of some of the 8-inch reflective tape on the ramps in the southbound lanes of I-43.

I-43 will have one lane closed in the southbound lanes from State 42 – County V for the placement of the wet reflective tape at interchange ramps. There will also be lane closures to complete the adjustment of beam guard and placement of shoulder gravel. These closures will be short in duration and only established while work is being done in those areas.

On State 23, shouldering, pavement marking, signing, and landscaping work along the eastbound and westbound lanes is continuing this week, along with shouldering at the State 57 ramps at State 23 and the State 32 ramps at State 23.

The 10-mile. $4.9 million State 23 project from County P to State 32 involves concrete dowel bar retrofit warranted, concrete diamond grinding, concrete pavement repair, concrete pavement replacement, concrete approach slabs, culvert maintenance, sign removal and installation asphaltic shoulders, beam guard upgrades, traffic control, pavement marking sawing existing pavement and incidentals necessary to complete work.

Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction along State 23 from County P to State 32. The State 32 ramps will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. for five nights starting Monday, July 12. The ramps will reopen Saturday morning, July 17.

On County O, crews will be paving asphalt from State 32 to N. Eighth St. Landscaping will begin west of Rangeline Road to State 32 after pavement has been placed.

The 1.3-mile, $1.1 million project from State 32 to 68th Street, involves grading, base aggregate, storm sewer, asphalt paving, pavement marking, and incidentals to complete the work.

County O is closed to through traffic during construction. A detour is posted and includes State 32, State 23, and County Y.

Work this week on Taylor Drive in the city of Sheboygan from Superior to Saemann avenue will include gravel, underground electrical, storm sewer inlet adjustment and concrete pavement.

The project, scheduled for completion in August, involves grading, base aggregate, concrete pavement, concrete curb and gutter, concrete sidewalks and driveways, storm sewer, water and sanitary sewer adjustments, pavement marking, and all incidental items necessary to complete the work.
