More bridge work planned for after busy weekend

Even with the county’s biggest fall events in the rearview mirror, you are being reminded to keep your eyes on the road this weekend. The Fall 50 brings thousands of runners and spectators to the peninsula with the course spanning almost the entire peninsula from Gills Rock to Sturgeon Bay. The course is primarily on backcountry roads, but some portions do cross Highway 42. Garrett Bay Road, Horseshoe Bay Drive, and County Highway B are among the affected roads due to the race. Peninsula State Park and Sunset Park in Sturgeon Bay will also see increased traffic due to the event. The roadways will not be closed to motorists, but caution is advised.  There could be additional traffic as Door County hits its peak for fall colors this weekend according to Travel Wisconsin.


On Monday, Wisconsin Department of Transportation crews will return to the Bayview Bridge to finish up some extra work. Flagging operations were used on Thursday to allow maintenance crews to make some routine repairs on the bridge stringer, which is the load-transferring structure below the grid deck. DOT Northeast Region Bridge Engineer Jason Lahm says the work is routine.

Crews are expected to be on-site Monday through Thursday and flagging operations will allow the work to be done safely while not having to close the road entirely.
