Gordon Road intersection area to see improvements after unanimous board approval

You will see some improvements made to what has proven to be one of the county’s more dangerous intersections in recent years. The Door County Board unanimously approved on Tuesday an additional $151,515 for improvements to be made to the intersection of State Highway 42/57 and Gordon Road. Last August, the board approved $100,000 to be used to limit motorists from being able to turn left from Gordon Road onto the STH 42/57 to head north. That traffic maneuver has caused the most serious of the over 20 total accidents to occur at the intersection. The additional funding will be used to not only make the intersection itself safer but to make improvements to Old Highway Road, which will likely see additional traffic as a result of the changes. Door County Highway Commissioner Thad Ash reiterated to the board why the improvements are needed and why some of them are likely temporary.

The county will likely not be able to start work on the improvements until after Labor Day. There have been no accidents at the intersection so far this year.
