Just in time for your kids to go back to school, you may have to change your route to get there in Kewaunee County.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that it will begin making improvements on State Highway 54 from near Rockledge Road to Sunset Avenue beginning on September 5th.
The project encompasses 13.2 miles of roadway and affects traffic flow through the towns of Luxemburg, Casco, and Ahnapee, the village of Casco, and the city of Algoma. While the road will remain open for much of the project with flagging operations to direct traffic, there will be a three-week period where the highway will be closed due to culvert replacements. Two short-term detours will be used during that time, one using County C and County K and another requiring County K and STH 42. In addition to replacing the culverts, construction crews will resurface the road, widen the paved shoulders, install rumble strips, and make other repairs. The $7.7 million project is expected to be finished by mid-November.
