Ephraim to reopen Highway 42 Friday

The hard closure signs are coming down in Ephraim in time for the Memorial Day weekend rush. State Highway 42 through the village has been completely closed for just over two months as work was done to add new curbs, street lighting, and sidewalks among other details as a part of Ephraim’s Streetscape project. Village Administrator Brent Bristol says it is nice to see four years of planning become a reality.

Even though the hard closure ends Friday, there will be flagging operation during the rest of the road reconstruction project when the Wisconsin Department of Transportation begins their work. The project is scheduled to be completed by June 28th.
