Expect to hit several construction zones on your travels to and from Door County this summer.
Expect to hit several construction zones on your travels to and from Door County this summer. In addition to Door County’s own work on Highway 42/57 from the southern junction to the Bayview Bridge, two other roadway projects along the way could slow you down. In Brown County, traffic is down to one lane on Highway 57 at County K to make that intersection safer. There are also multiple sections of I-43 that are expected to close lanes and ramps until at least September in some cases and even as late as November. Mark Kantola from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the number of construction projects is about the same as before, and moving forward with their six-year plan. He admits the impact of those projects may be higher than others.
Motorists looking to avoid construction and enjoy the view while driving do have at least one option, as State Highway 42 is not scheduled to have a project for at least one more year. Kantola encourages motorists to drive carefully through construction zones so everyone can get home safely.
