Start planning your routes now if you plan on traveling through Fish Creek in the coming months. Construction is set to begin later this month to resurface Highway 42, which also includes the creation of a turn lane and sidewalk near Shore Road, the replacement of lighting, and new pedestrian traffic improvements near Gibraltar schools and the Northern Door County YMCA. It has been a long time coming for businesses in Fish Creek, which have been bracing for the projects for a few years to only see it pushed aside later. Fish Creek Civic Association President Denise Stillman says business owners are ready for the project to get going so the inconveniences are minimal and the rewards are seen quickly.
Most of the construction is expected to run from October 21st through November 22nd before taking a break for the winter, while some portions have already started. The project will start again in late March and run until approximately the end of June.
