The Door County Highway Department is doing some initial construction on Spring Road south of Fish Creek that will eventually make it more walker and bike-friendly. Tuesday, crews are working on extending a concrete box culvert in the Town of Gibraltar on Spring Road in preparation of widening the road later this year. Door County Highway Department Commissioner John Kolodziej says the town of Gibraltar wants to widen the road by five feet to accommodate bicyclists and provide better safety.
Kolodziej says Spring Road is one of the main designated routes bicyclists use who also rides through the nearby Peninsula State Park. Traffic will be open on Spring Road during Tuesday’s work but it will be down to one lane. Drivers are advised to use caution in the construction area and expect delays.
