Sheriff’s Department Reminds Motorists to Obey Detours

The Door County Sheriff’s Office says it has received several reports of vehicles ignoring the detour route for the Village of Ephraim road construction project and are attempting to navigate the work zone. According to information posted on the department’s web site, the area is closed to “through traffic.” “Through traffic,” is defined as vehicles that do not have an origin or destination inside the work zone. The Sheriff’s Department is also reminding drivers that no person may use a cell or other wireless telephone where persons are engaged in work in a highway maintenance or construction area or in a utility work area and are at risk from traffic, except to report an emergency. The restriction does not apply to the use of voice-operated or hands-free devices.
