Sturgeon Bay residents can expect to have to find alternate routes around town as the County Highway C/Duluth Avenue reconstruction project is set to begin March 26th. The project will consist of several phases with the first phase being the installation of a new storm sewer beginning with the intersection of West Hickory and North Joliet Avenue, going block by block until it reaches County Highway C. Highway C will face more work with the excavation of the road, the installation of the storm sewer, as well as a new aggregate base, new curb and gutter, and new asphalt. Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says besides the weather, he doesn’t expect any delays with the project.
Kolodziej adds that residents along the construction should have their mailbox moved by April 8th. Motorists are reminded to use caution in construction areas and obey all signage. For continuing updates during the project, people can contact Sturgeon Bay City Engineer, Chad Shefchik.
