The heavier traffic season is here, and roadway construction in Sturgeon Bay is making progress on all fronts. The City’s 2022 street projects began this week in earnest with a six-block stretch on Michigan Street from 18th Avenue to 12th Avenue looking to finish up gas line replacement within the next couple of weeks.
Another workaround for Sturgeon Bay includes adding new sidewalks on parts of Rhode Island Street and North 14th Avenue that should be finished by next week, if not earlier, weather permitting.
Sidewalks and curbing on North 18th Avenue and West Walnut Drive are scheduled to be removed next week. The complete Sturgeon Bay construction update from City Engineer Chad Shefchick can be found below.
The City’s 2022 roadway projects started this week! See below for updates on the various projects.
The following projects will be adding new sidewalks along:
- Rhode Island Street (north side of the roadway between S 14th Ave & S 12th Ave)
- N 14th Ave (west side of the roadway between Egg Harbor Road & Bluebird Street)
Currently the contractor has finished removing the topsoil and placing the gravel base for the new sidewalks on Rhode Island Street and should complete the same on N 14th Ave tomorrow or early next week. If the weather cooperates the concrete should start to be poured next week.
Michigan Street (from 18th Ave to 12th Ave) along with S 16th Place (from Michigan Street to approx. 490’ to the south): The contractor is continuing to work on the gas line replacements and is hoping to finish that work mid to late May. After they finish, they will then move to N Geneva Ave (from W Juniper Street to the termination north of W Hickory Street) for gas line replacements on that roadway as well.
The following roadways are marked out and ready for removal of any curbing and/or sidewalk scheduled for replacement:
- N 18th Ave (from Florida Street to Iowa Street)
- W Walnut Drive (from S Duluth Ave to S Hudson Ave)
This work will begin next week and continue on to Michigan Street & S 16th Place after the gas lines are completed.
As a reminder, please use alternative routes when possible. Reduced traffic within the project areas will result in a safer, more productive, and efficient project that will also allow for the earliest possible completion.
