Tuesday marks the first day of a $4.3 million project to improve a portion of State Highway 57 between Baileys Harbor and Sister Bay. The project will include resurfacing and replacing existing culvert pipes along the highway from the south County Q intersection to Canterbury Lane and replacing a box culvert with a bridge between Ahrens (Cedar) Road and Meadow Road. The highway will be closed and detoured for over a month, but Mark Kantola from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation says that will change ahead of Sister Bay’s Fall Festival.
State Highway 57 will be open to traffic from October 12 to their winter shutdown and when resurfacing picks up in 2018. Work is expected to be completed in June 2018. You can learn more about the project and see detour routes by clicking here.
