A resurfacing project by the Door County Highway Department near the Cherryland Airport will start up next Monday. The roadway on County C from Rileys Bay Road to County PD will be detoured for a month while the construction is being completed. Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej estimates that the road work will take about a month.
Kolodziej notes that local drivers needing to access the roadway should be aware of loose gravel and dusty conditions. Workers will be on the job site from 6 am until 5 pm on weekdays. Other projects planned for later this summer include another resurfacing on County U from Johnson Road to just south of Lake Lane and overlay work on County M from County C north to Hainesville Road.
CTH C Resurfacing Project – Rileys Bay Road to CTH PD
August 10, 2020
The Door County Highway Department will begin a resurfacing project on CTH C from Rileys Bay Road to CTH PD on August 17, 2020. The work includes milling off the existing pavement followed by placement of new hot mix asphalt surface, gravel shouldering and pavement marking.
Traffic Control: The Roadway will be closed to thru traffic during construction hours each working day on the project. Local access to property will be permitted. A detour will be established and signed to include Rileys Bay Road, Sand Bay Road (CTH SB) and CTH PD. All sections will be opened to traffic at the end of each workday. Sections may require complete closure of the roadway for the milling and paving operations. The highway department will provide signage in advance of the closed sections when this occurs. Access for emergency vehicles will be provided at all times.
Project Schedule: Pulverizing the existing asphalt pavement will begin on Monday, August 17, 2020 at the intersection of CTH C and Rileys Bay Road. Paving operations will begin the week of August 17, 2020. All work is scheduled to be completed by September 18, 2020. Workers will be on the job site between the hours of 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday thru Friday.
Please be advised to use caution around road construction crews and equipment. As with any road construction project, the work is controlled by favorable weather. Because of the scope of work, you will experience dusty conditions, loose gravel and uneven paving lanes. Please slow down when traveling the roadway. All motorists are urged to use caution in the construction area and to obey all signage.
