Door County trying to address Gordon Road intersection

The Highway 42-57 and Gordon Road intersection just north of Sturgeon Bay that has raised public concerns for safety in the past few years has Door County making efforts to make changes. Door County Highway Commissioner Thad Ash says he is putting in an application to make for a “right-turn-only” lane on Gordon Road to enter the highway. Ash notes that it is very preliminary, and there is no guarantee that anything will move forward. The application will be submitted to the state by June 3, with the estimated timeline ranging from 2024 to 2028 while permitting and design work are done. The majority of the funding would be through the federal government, but the State of Wisconsin would oversee it and run it as a state contract. Door County would also be responsible for 20 percent of the project. Ash hopes to hear confirmation from the state on the application shortly after submitting it.
