People hanging out in northern Door County will have to find a different county park to explore rather than Ellison Bluff County Park this week. The park will shut down on Monday evening to begin paving operations the next day. On Tuesday, the Parks Department will do compacting and grading work to make sure surfaces are level. Then, on Wednesday and Thursday, paving will begin.
Door County Parks Manager Burke Pinney says the dates and times could change and that the staff will keep an eye on nightly temperatures, hoping it doesn’t get too cool for paving. He says the forecast for the time period looks favorable. Pinney is also hopeful the park will reopen at approximately 8:00 AM on Friday.
