The Door County Highway Department, along with the City of Sturgeon Bay, has scheduled a public hearing to discuss the design and environmental aspects of proposed improvements on County C(Duluth Avenue) in Sturgeon Bay. The public meeting is planned for Thursday, February 19th, from 5-7PM, at the City Hall Community Room at 421 Michigan Street. The project will include replacing the pavement and adding sidewalk from Highway 42 to Spruce Drive. From Spruce Drive to West Elm Street, the entire roadway will be reconstructed to include storm sewers, curb and gutter, new pavement, bicycle lanes and sidewalk. In addition, the realignment of Maple Street at the intersection with County C is being explored. Storm sewer improvements will be required between County C and an outfall in Sturgeon Bay. Several potential routes are being investigated, construction is anticipated in 2017, and traffic will be detoured during construction. New, temporary and permanent right of way will be acquired to accommodate the construction and new roadway. The public is encouraged to atend the public meeting to learn more about the proposed improvements.
