You can expect to see orange construction barrels popping up just north of Sturgeon Bay beginning April 24th. The one and only state highway improvement planned in Door County this year starts next week. The over $1.5 million contract will make improvements on a 1.2-mile stretch of highway from Egg Harbor Road to the mid-junction of WIS 42 and WIS 57 begins. Traffic on the roadway will remain open to traffic from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., with the majority of the work being done overnight. Detour routes will be set up from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m., with access to side roads and adjacent properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the project. Wisconsin Department of Transportation Regional Communications Manager Mark Kantola explains the benefits of the improvements to the highway.
Kantola notes that the road construction on Highway 42 should be completed in June. You can find details on the construction project and detours at https://projects.511wi.gov/wis42shore/.
