Water levels causing issues on Sturgeon Bay streets

Higher water levels around the Sturgeon Bay canal have impacted shoreline and street access this spring.  Areas like Memorial Drive and Alabama Street near Sunset Park has caused the City of Sturgeon Bay to put up barriers and caution signs.  Public Works Director Mike Barker says drivers should slow down and avoid streets with any standing water. He notes that any engineering changes to the roadway would be quite significant.  One option the City of Sturgeon Bay is exploring is raising the elevation of Alabama Street by 12 to 15 inches with a gravel road base.  Currently, affected residents on the street are not getting mail or package delivery.  Barker explains the fluid situation that is happening along Memorial Drive.



Barker says two street areas regularly impacted on Memorial Drive by standing water are also causing flooding of a few residential lawns.
