Traffic Lights At Egg Harbor Road To Be Discussed

Those who'd like to see the traffic signals at Hwy 42/57 and Egg Harbor Road become a permanent fixture might have to wait a while.

The lights were placed at the intersection as part of the Bayview Bridge detour.

But Will Dorsey, the Northeast Region director for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, told Sevastopol town officials Friday the temporary signals were just that -- temporary -- and the intersection is not currently set up to handle traffic signals.

"It was okay for a temporary situation for the construction of the bridge to serve the purpose it did," says Dorsey. "But statutorily we just can't put signals in without doing an analysis and intersection evaluation."

Dorsey says the state does plan to conduct such an analysis as part of a longer-term project, currently penciled in for 2016.

But that doesn't mean state officials aren't willing to talk about it before then.

Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says the issue will be taken up at two upcoming committee meetings -- the Highway Safety Commission meeting July 11 and the Highway Committee meeting July 15.

"There is a lot of interest both at the county level and the city level for that very issue," says Kolodziej.

Bags were placed over the lights Friday when the bridge reopened and crews are scheduled to take them down this week.
