Motorists north of Fish Creek are still on track to get some relief on State Highway 42 next week. The southbound lane of State Highway 42 between County Highway F to Shore Road expects to be reopened by the end of the day on November 22nd as construction crews continue to install new storm sewers, add curb and gutter to some spots, and begin electrical work for street lighting. Wisconsin Department of Transportation Project Manager Jeremy Ashauer says the weather is to blame for some of the minor delays occurring within the project.
Even when the southbound lane is reopened, motorists will still need to be on alert as flagging operations will continue to be on the job during the daytime hours. You can find a timeline of upcoming jobs as a part of the Highway 42 reconstruction project by clicking here.
