Door County Board Gives Green Light To J-Turns At 57 & C

 

Most everyone knows what a U-turn is and many have heard of a Y-turn. Now Door County motorists are going to get a first-hand look at J-turns.

That's after the Door County Board voted 20-1 to approve a resolution supporting the construction of J-turns at the crash-prone intersection of State Hwy 57 and County Hwy C in the town of Brussels.

But it's not going to happen right away.

Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says the state currently doesn't have money for the project although he says they plan to apply for funding through state highway safety grants.

No local funds would be used to pay for the project.


The revamped intersection would prohibit traffic on Hwy C from crossing 57 or making a left turn. Instead motorists would need to make a right turn onto the highway, travel for about a quarter-mile, then make a u-turn to proceed in the opposite direction. They then could continue straight or take a right when they re-arrived at Hwy C.

County officials say 25 crashes -- 17 involving injury -- have occurred at the intersection since the Hwy 57 project was fully opened in October 2008.
