Road projects continue

Work continues this week on two state highway projects in Sheboygan County, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) Northeast Region office in Green Bay.

On the State 23 resurfacing project, the contractor was scheduled to finish paving a westbound acceleration lane, and all intersections Monday and Tuesday, July 23 and 24. Shouldering operations should begin Wednesday, July 25, with signing and minor beamguard operations beginning late in the week or the week after.

The 7.5-mile, $1,767,599.32 project on State 23 from Division Street (Greenbush) to County P (Plymouth) is scheduled for completion in mid to late August.

Work consists of milling and resurfacing of asphaltic pavement surface, adding base aggregate to shoulders, adding centerline rumble strips, signing, pavement marking, and beamguard adjustments.

There are single lane closures on State 23 with flagging operations. All lanes will remain open during holidays and large race events at Road America.

On the Intersate 43 cable barrier project in Sheboygan and Manitowoc counties, the contractor this week will continue installing cable barrier on the south segment. Depending how far they get, they may start installing cable barrier on segments 2 and 3.

The 6.27-mile, $1.64 million project on I-43 from Wilson Lima Road to Fischer Creek Road is scheduled for completion Aug. 29.

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 EE/Weeden Creek Road. The middle segment starts at County 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. There is no detour.

Motorists are advised to use caution and remain alert when driving through any work zone. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
