Three road projects in county

Drivers in Sheboygan County will have three state highway projects to contend with starting this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation northeast region office in Green Bay.

Work began this week on the State 28 resurfacing project from State 57 in the town of Lyndon to Prange Road in the town of Wilson.

The 8.6-mile, $2.25 million project, due to be finished in mid late September, includes milling and resurfacing existing asphaltic pavement, adding centerline rumble strips, guard rail adjustment and replacement, gabion wall construction, sidewalk and curb ramp replacement, pavement marking and signing, and modifying street lighting.

This week the contractor will install erosion control, traffic control, and setup the detour.

Once the intersection is closed at State 28 and State 32, the contractor will begin removals in the intersection and begin reinstalling lighting equipment, curb & gutter and sidewalk. Milling and paving will begin on Thursday and carry through to Saturday, Aug. 4.

The intersection of State 28 and State 32 will be closed through Aug. 14. State 28 will be open to local traffic east and west of the intersection closure. Traffic needs to utilize the detour route and be vigilant of construction vehicles entering and leaving the work zone.

State 28 eastbound traffic will be detoured south on State 57 to County V east and Interstate 43 north. State 28 westbound traffic will be detoured south on I-43 to County V west and State 57 north. State 32 northbound traffic will be detoured east on County V to I-43 north and State 23 west. State 32 southbound traffic will be detoured east on State 23 to I-43 south and west on County V.

On the State 23 resurfacing project from Division Street (Greenbush) to County P (Plymouth), the contractor began shouldering operations Monday. Signing and minor beam guard operations are set to begin Aug. 1. Centerline rumble strips should be placed late in the week.

The 7.5-mile project, set for completion in mid to late August, consists of milling and resurfacing of asphaltic pavement surface, adding base aggregate to shoulders, adding centerline rumble strips, signing, pavement marking, and beam guard adjustments.

There are single lane closures on State 23 with flagging operations.

On the I-43 cable barrier project, the contractor will continue installing cable barrier on the middle and north segments this week.

The 6.27-mile, $1.64 million project on I-43 from Wilson Lima Road to Fischer Creek Road is due to be finished Aug. 29.

The I-43 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.
