With one of the busiest weekends of the year in Door County starting today, Highways 57 between Baileys Harbor and Sister Bay re-opened on Wednesday after being closed since early September. Sister Bay’s Fall Festival brings in thousands of people to the northern parts of the county and Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle cautions drivers to be extra patient when traveling area roads and streets this weekend.
The resurfacing project on Highway 57 is an eight-mile stretch between Bailey’s Harbor and Sister Bay. Road construction will continue into the spring of 2018 with lane closures with flagging operations until winter shutdown, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
