If you commute to opposite sides of Sturgeon Bay you may have to plan a different route to your destination starting February 28th. The Michigan Street Bridge in Sturgeon Bay will be closed continuously from February 28 - March 11 for both vehicle and boat traffic, as the repairs are made from the impact damage last fall. The bridge was damaged early in October when a semi-truck struck the support structure of the bridge. You will be able to use the Oregon Street Bridge as well as the Highway Bridge in Sturgeon Bay to cross town, however you may want to set aside more time to get to your destination, as traffic will be increased to both of those bridges. This news comes in addition to the one lane closure on northbound WIS 57 between the Kewaunee/Door County line and County D. The lane will be closed from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, February 15 and Wednesday, February 16. Motorists are urged to slow down and be mindful of workers near highways.
