Hwy 42 Rumble Strip Work To Start Wednesday

The project to install centerline rumble strips on a 16 mile stretch of State Highway 42 between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor is scheduled to start Wednesday, October 3.

Wisconsin Department of Transportation officials say the road will remain open to traffic during construction with single lane closures and flagging operations. There is the potential for backups and motorists are reminded to remain alert when driving through the work zones.

Rumble strips -- which give drivers both an audible warning (rumbling sound) and feeling (vibration) when their vehicles have drifted out of the travel lane -- have mostly been used on divided highways but more states are now using them on two-lane highways to try to prevent crashes.

The Highway 42 project is one of many rumble strip installation projects being overseen by the DOT. The state plans to install rumble strips on about 550 miles of rural, two-lane state highway segments which have a history of run-off-the-road crashes.
