State 42 to close in stages throughout Kewaunee County for culvert replacement, new bridge
KEWAUNEE COUNTY – A $1.76 million Wisconsin Department of Transportation project to replace culverts along State 42 between Algoma and Kewaunee and north of Algoma and build a new bridge over Three Mile Creek will close stretches of the highway between now and sometime this fall.
The Northeast Regional Office of the DOT said in a press release the work will be conducted in stages using highway closures, detours and flagging operations. Access to properties in the construction zones will be provided at all times.
The first stage of the project started June 29 for what the DOT called "critical pipe replacement" near Roosevelt Road north of Algoma. That stage is expected to end this week; the marked detour follows State 54, County D and County X.
The next stage starts Monday and will see State 42 closed from County O north of Kewaunee to County K south of Algoma, with flagpersons controlling traffic from Duvall Street on the north side of Kewaunee to County O. The detour will follow County O, County E and State 54 at first, then shift to County D and County K after culvert work between O and D is completed.
Work this fall will close State 42 from Greenfield Avenue on Algoma's north side to the Door County line. The detour for this stage again will be on State 54, County D and County X. The exact date to start this stage will be determined.
Scheduled dates for the work are subject to change depending on weather. For more information, visit projects.511wi.gov/wis422020.
