State Highway 54 prepares for facelift

State Highway 54 in Kewaunee County will see some major work done to it within the next four years. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is now accepting public comment on the project that is slated to begin in 2024. It will primarily consist of repaving the road from approximately Rockledge Road in Luxemburg to Sunset Avenue in Algoma. Project manager Jeremy Ashauer says in addition to wider paved shoulders and some minor details being taken care of near the Ahnapee State Trail, the Village of Casco will see some extra work done.

Public comments on the 13-mile project will be accepted until the end of the month. The final plans should be completed by November 2022. Work could begin as soon as 2023 if additional funding is acquired. You can read more about the proposed work by clicking this link.
