Making it easier for you to walk along Michigan Street is why it will be harder for you to commute through Sturgeon Bay over the next few weeks.
City Engineering Technician Brian Spetz announced Tuesday that the westbound lane of Michigan Street between 10th and 12th avenues would be closed to traffic for two to three weeks beginning on Wednesday, September 21st, due to sidewalk construction. The lane will only be closed when crews are on-site to work on the project, allowing it to reopen during other parts of the day.
Once the work begins on Wednesday, Spetz estimates the project will take two to three weeks to complete. He suggests motorists stay out of the construction zone area if possible until the work is completed for your safety and the safety of the workers.
