After a brief break, road construction season continues in the city of Kewaunee on Wednesday. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation begins its $1.9 million road improvement project, which stretches from Miller Street to Duvall Street on State Highway 42. The city’s bridges over the Kewaunee River and Ahnapee State Trail will be rehabbed as the highway gets resurfaced. One lane of traffic will remain open while flagging operations and temporary lights help direct vehicles. When it comes to major thoroughfares through a city’s downtowns, Mark Kantola from the DOT says they try to be as quick as possible without getting too much in the way.
Kantola expects work to be finished in October. The city of Kewaunee started work on the one-mile stretch July 10 to upgrade its sanitary sewer, potable water, and stormwater infrastructure.
