Crews working on the County Highway C/Duluth Avenue project on Sturgeon Bay’s west side are feeling safer after a significant reduction in the amount of traffic going through the construction zone. Early in the project crews had dealt with drivers not obeying “No through traffic” signs and traveling at high speeds. Chad Shefchik, Sturgeon Bay City Engineer says that the current state of the road is a large factor in cars avoiding the area.
Shefchik adds that an increased police presence in the early stages of the project may have influenced the decrease in traffic as well. The project is slated to be completed in mid-August
