Project begins Thursday, June 1, 2017

Release Date: May 25, 2017

(Sheboygan County) As part of his efforts to create jobs and make sure Wisconsin is open for business, Governor Scott Walker recently approved $6.2 million to improve 6.9 miles of I-43 in Sheboygan County from WIS 42 to the North County Line (County Line Road). The project is scheduled to start Thursday, June 1, 2017 and last until November of this year.

Northeast Asphalt of Greenville, Wis. is the prime contractor.

Project improvements

  • Resurfacing and concrete base patching of mainline I-43
  • Ramp resurfacing at the I-43/WIS 42 interchange
  • Culvert replacements, new signage and pavement markings

I-43 Traffic impacts

There will be single lane closures of northbound and southbound I-43 during construction, leaving one lane of traffic open for motorists in various segments of the project work zone. However, lane closures will be removed during peak travel times on the weekend.

  • Northbound I-43 will be down to a single lane of travel from 6 a.m. Saturday through noon on Friday during construction. 
    • All lanes open from noon Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday during construction.
  • Southbound I-43 will be down to a single lane of travel from 6 a.m. Monday through 6 a.m. Sunday during construction.
    • All lanes open from 6 a.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday during construction.
  • There will be various nighttime closures of the I-43/WIS 42 interchange ramps for paving operations.

Project benefits include extending the life of the existing pavement structure and providing an improved driving surface for motorists.

Motorists are reminded to use caution and remain alert when driving through this or any work zone.
