Drivers around Sister Bay will have the holiday weekend free of construction work before a resurfacing project begins next Tuesday. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced Thursday that Governor Tony Evers officially signed the $3.9 million contract to improve a six and one-half mile stretch from Gibraltar Road to Country Walk Drive in Sister Bay. DOT Regional Communications Manager Mark Kantola says the road construction schedule will take into consideration the busy tourism season.
Kantola says the resurfacing project will also include storm sewer repairs and culvert replacement. He adds that the road construction should be completed by October of this year.
