DC Board of Supervisors Address Gordon Road Intersection

The Highway 42/57 intersection with Gordon Road on the north end of Sturgeon Bay has been a growingly troublesome traffic spot with more and more accidents occurring there every year. At Tuesday’s county board meeting, there were 2 resolutions passed unanimously to address the problem. First, a resolution was passed approving the use of $100,000 of non-budgeted county funds to implement improvements to that intersection. These improvements would be put in sometime this fall, and would include a change to the island and curbing on Gordon Road so the left turn lane from Gordon Road to the highway would be eliminated and that Gordon Road traffic would only be allowed to turn right onto the southbound lane of the highway. Later in the meeting, another resolution was passed unanimously approving a county request to the state of Wisconsin to allocate funds towards improving this intersection and to move forward with those improvements. It was mentioned that the state plans to re-surface the highway from the Mill Supper Club down to the roundabout at Egg Harbor Road, and once they finish that re-surfacing they are unlikely to do more work on that stretch for another 10 years. Also, the concept of putting in a roundabout at this intersection could take up to 6 years to accomplish with the acquisition of nearby property required, and county supervisors prefer this troublesome intersection to be improved much sooner than later.
