The Door County Highway Department has been able to stay on schedule with much of the road construction this spring. The County Highway U resurfacing project south of Sturgeon Bay is nearly complete and is open for through traffic this holiday weekend. County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says the scenic winding road had issues with proper drainage.
Kolodziej says numerous culverts for driveways were put in to improve the drainage. The road was also widened from 22 feet to 28 feet to make is safer for traffic. The project is scheduled to be completed by June 1.
