A request from the Town of Baileys Harbor for rumble strips on County Highway E has been put on hold by the Door County Highway Committee. The request came before the highway committee Monday morning. Township officials had requested rumble strips after some people who fish along the causeway complained about near hits from vehicles on County Highway E. The rumble strips are similar to those used to warn drivers when they’re crossing the center line on a road or approaching a stop sign. Highway Committee Chair John Neinas :: NINE-us :: says the committee wants other options considered.
Town of Baileys Harbor officials say traffic on County Highway E is increasing and they believe more safety measures are needed.
