Underground transmission line work to impact travel

The high power transmission lines being bored underneath the Sturgeon Bay channel will impact travel in the city.  Starting Tuesday the main intersection of East Maple Street and S. Neenah Avenue will be closed until Thursday.  Sturgeon Bay City Engineer Chad Shefchik says the project by American Transmission Company will impact travel over the Maple-to-Oregon Street Bridge.



He says when all the work is done, repairs will have to be done to Neenah Avenue.



Shefchik says that ATC’s major work should be completed by late Wednesday with roadways reopening on Thursday.  



Press release:


Just a reminder:  Starting tomorrow the intersection of E Maple Street and S Neenah Ave will be closed to traffic along with the modified current roadway restrictions on S Neenah Ave from E Maple Street to Willow Drive.  These closures and restrictions will begin early tomorrow morning and last late into Wednesday evening while ATC is pulling their conduits underneath the Bay.  If emergency access is needed along S Neenah Ave during this timeframe:

  • Access the east side of S Neenah Ave by using S Oxford Ave and heading north if needed.
  • Access the west side of S Neenah Ave by using E Oak Street, E Pine Street, or E Redwood Street and heading south if needed.

However, if at all possible please avoid these areas until the work is completed and the roadways are reopened to traffic.
