Construction crews head back to work on Highway 57 Wednesday with its eight-mile improvement project between the South County Q intersection and Canterbury Lane. It is a continuation of last fall’s project that replaced culvert pipes and a bridge over a tributary to Mud Lake. Brynn Swanson from the Baileys Harbor Community Association says even with the full road closure for a short period of time last fall, the roadwork had very little impact on area businesses outside the work zone and in fact, some people even enjoyed the detour.
Motorists will experience flagging operations as crews work to repave the stretch, but Swanson recommends taking County Highway Q and side roads to travel to and from Baileys Harbor from the north and businesses inside the work zone. The project is expected to be finished by the end of June.
