State 23 repaving wrapping up

Work on three state highway projects in the county will continue this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Northeast Region office in Green Bay, with one nearly complete.

The contractor will be finishing up any miscellaneous items and punchlist details on the State 23 resurfacing project from Division Street (Greenbush) to County P (Plymouth) this week. Flagging operations may or may not be necessary, but should be minimal.

The 7.50-mile project consists of milling and resurfacing of asphaltic pavement surface, adding base aggregate to shoulders, adding centerline rumble strips, signing, pavement marking, and beamguard adjustments.

On the State 28 resurfacing project from State 57 in the town of Lyndon to Prange Road in the town of Wilson, the contractor will resume paving west of the State 28/32 intersection between Brusse Road and west end of the project this week.

Guardrail adjustments and replacements, pavement marking, and landscaping will take place throughout the project in anticipation to remove the State 28/32 closure by Wednesday night. The contractor anticipates beginning shouldering operations towards the end of the week.

The 8.60-mile, $2.25 million project 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.

The intersection of State 28 and 32 will be closed through Aug. 15. State 28 will be open to local traffic east and west of the intersection closure. Through traffic needs to utilize the detour route and be vigilant of construction vehicles entering and leaving the work zone.

Detours are: 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 I-43 cable barrier project, this week the contractor will continue installing hardware for the cable barrier on the middle and north segments. Most likely the contractor will move to the south segment at some point in the week to install hardware on the line posts.

The 6.27-mile, $1.64 million project on I-43 from Wilson Lima Road to Fischer Creek Road 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.

Motorists are advised to use caution and remain alert when driving through any work zone.
