WIS 42 projects continue

The portion of major improvements to Wisconsin 42 are in the final month, depending on possible delays. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation began work on one section, covering WIS 42 between the center intersection with WIS 42/57 in Sturgeon Bay and County T in Egg Harbor, in early April and began work on the other section, covering the same road from South. Village boundaries from Egg Harbor to Fish Creek between the intersection of WIS 42 and Rainbow Ridge Court and the intersection of WIS 42 and Bluff Lane, approximately one month later.

On both projects, construction workers were currently paving the roadway as they worked toward their June 8 completion date. To the north, all paving is now completed north of the intersection of Church Road and WIS 42 (north of Egg Harbor) to the northern project boundary of Bluff Lane and WIS 42 (Fish Creek). Over the next week, crews will continue paving and milling in the Village of Egg Harbor as the Village continues to work on sidewalks, street lighting, and curbs and gutters. In the southern portion of the project, contractors will continue to pave the surface and install temporary paving as they work north.

Local traffic is allowed through the construction areas, but they will have to deal with flagging operations controlling the area. Motorists can still use the detour that uses WIS 57 and County Roads V, A and EE to bypass the construction. The roadway will be open to traffic on June 19 and on weekends.
