Road construction hits Ephraim March 18th

You will have to be either creative with your route or follow the detour to get around Ephraim beginning March 18th. That is when Highway 42 will be closed in the village to thru traffic as the Wisconsin Department of Transportation begins its reconstruction project from the Sister Bay-Ephraim border to the town of Gibraltar.  Village administrator Brent Bristol says there will be plenty of signage to get around effectively, especially since the snow is making for some cramped quarters for motorists.

Highway 42 is expected to be reopened to thru traffic in Ephraim by the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Stages 2 and 3 are expected to be wrapped up by the end of June.


You can find more information on the Ephraim road construction and streetscape projects posted online here.

Would you rather see the legislature increase the gas tax and receive funding from out-of-state visitors or increase the registration fee and only get more money from Wisconsin residents?
