The picture may be different once the tourism season starts, but police say traffic has been flowing pretty smoothly through Sturgeon Bay now that the Bayview Bridge is closed.
That's not to say there aren't some problem spots.
Sturgeon Bay Police Sgt. Greg Zager says back-ups have occurred on Michigan Street near Sturgeon Bay High School at the beginning and end of the school day. He says 1st and Michigan has also become clogged around 3:30 p.m. when Bay Shipbuilding lets out.
Zager says police are directing traffic in those areas.
Sgt. Zager tells DoorCountyDailyNews.com that he hasn't observed any additional speeding or other traffic violations along the detour route.
As for any special message he has for motorists during the detour, Zager says "abide by the signs and take your time."
The Bayview Bridge carries about 12,700 vehicles a day -- less than that this time of year but up to 15,000 vehicles a day during the summer. That traffic is being re-routed through the city until the bridge reopens in early July.
