Motorists traveling through Kewaunee County will have to get used to the sight of traffic cones and construction equipment over the next several weeks. Preliminary work has already begun in Luxemburg on Main Street as a part of an ongoing paving and utility work projects. The street is not expected to completely close during the work, but it could be cut down to one lane with flaggers on duty. Repaving parts of the roadway near County AB and County A will begin in earnest on May 17th with work expected to be finished in early June. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced Wednesday it would start repairing the bridge approaches over the Kewaunee River between County AB and County C beginning on May 10th and running through May 14th. DOT official Mark Kantola says it is nothing out of the ordinary.
Detour information for the bridge approach projects are below. Major work on Highway 42 from south of Kewaunee city limits to the Manitowoc County border is also scheduled to begin later this summer. Traffic in Luxemburg will be slowed down Thursday morning due to a house moving down Main Street beginning at 9 a.m. The house will have to cross Highway 54 and parking will be restricted on Main Street north of Ash Street until after the move.
