Tuesday marked the first day of extensive road construction work for a portion of Highway 42 in Kewaunee. From July 10 through July 23, the city will begin maintenance work of its sanitary sewer, potable water, and stormwater infrastructure below Highway 42 between Miller and Duvall Streets. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will take the reins August 6 to complete the project, which will include road resurfacing. Kewaunee Mayor Sandi Christman says despite the inconvenience the project is good news for the city.
At least one lane of traffic will be open during the entire road reconstruction project, which is slated to be finished on August 27 barring any setbacks.
