A major thoroughfare through the City of Sturgeon Bay could reopen by the end of the week for your travels. Sturgeon Bay City Engineer Chad Shefchik announced on Wednesday that crews will be applying the final layer of asphalt on a stretch of Michigan Street from just west of 12th Avenue to 4th Avenue and some of the connecting streets in between. That could make it possible that those streets will be reopened to all traffic on June 23rd. Shefchik advises motorists to avoid the area until the work is completed. Work on the roadways began on June 7th. You can read the full construction update below.
Construction Update - Sturgeon Bay Roadway Projects
If things go well Michigan Street and all of the roadways branching off of it will get their final layer of asphalt tomorrow (June 22nd) and finish by the end of the day. Therefore, if things go according to plan the following roadways will be reopened to full traffic on June 23rd!
- Michigan Street (from just west of 12th Ave to 4th Ave)
- N 12th Ave (from Michigan Street to Louisiana Street)
- S 8th Ave (from Michigan Street to Oregon Street)
- S 7th Ave (from Michigan Street to Oregon Street)
Please completely avoid these areas if at all possible tomorrow (June 22nd).
- S 16th Place (from Rhode Island Street to Utah Street) should be completing on Friday (June 23rd) and the following roadways were completed this morning:
- W Juniper Street (from N Duluth Ave to N Fulton Ave)
- N Elgin Ave (from W Juniper Street to W Hickory Street)
While these activities are taking place all of the roadways under construction will be closed to all nonlocal traffic. Therefore, if you are not traveling to a property within the closed areas please do not enter the closed areas at all. Generally, all of the closed roadways will have “soft” closures so that people who live within the closed areas can get to their homes. However, Michigan Street will have full hard closures between 12th Ave & 14th Ave and between 4th Ave & 5th Ave to discourage people from improperly entering the closed areas. These closures will remain in place until the new asphalt surfaces are completed.
