A $1.5 million roadwork project to improve state Highway 42/57 near Sturgeon Bay begins May 1st, from the Egg Harbor Road roundabout north to the highway split. The majority of the work will be done during overnight hours and is expected to be finished sometime in June. The project will include milling and resurfacing of existing asphalt, widening the paved shoulders to 5 feet, adding gravel to the existing shoulders, replacing culvert pipes and storm sewer inlets, permanent signing, and pavement markings.
The roadwork will be done nightly from 6PM until 6AM, but the highway will remain open to traffic during the daytime hours. The nightly highway closures will include signed detour routes involving Egg Harbor Road, Old Highway Road, and County Roads BB and HH. Later in the project, the northbound bypass lane at County BB may require a daytime closure for guardrail work for a maximum of 1 week.
