The Door County Highway Department will begin the resurfacing project on Spring Road south of Fish Creek that will eventually make it more walker and bike-friendly. Next Monday, crews are working on pulverizing the existing pavement in the Town of Gibraltar on Spring Road in preparation for 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 used by bicyclists that ride through the nearby Peninsula State Park. All thru traffic will be closed on Spring Road during the excavation and grading of the gravel base prior to paving operations. All work on Spring Road is expected to be completed by June 15.
