Release Date: Sept. 12, 2017

(Sheboygan County) As part of his efforts to create jobs and make sure Wisconsin is open for business, Governor Scott Walker recently approved $1.9 million to improve 7.3 miles of WIS 32 from WIS 42 in the village of Howards Grove to the WIS 32/57 junction in the town of Millhome, Sheboygan County. The project begins Monday, Sept. 18, and will finish by the end of October this year.

Northeast Asphalt Inc., of Greenville, Wis., is the Prime Contractor.

Project improvements

The work includes resurfacing the roadway with new asphalt and widening the paved shoulders from three to five feet. Work also includes new shoulder and centerline rumble strips, shoulder gravel, pavement marking, and curb repairs in the town of Ada.

Project traffic impacts

WIS 32 will remain open to traffic with temporary lane closures. Flagging operations will take place during lane closures. Motorists can expect minor delays due to flagging. 

Project benefits

New centerline and shoulder rumble strips and extended paved shoulders will provide a safer roadway. Resurfacing will provide a smoother driving surface for motorists.

Construction details and traffic impacts will be provided weekly for this project on the Northeast Region Weekly Highway Construction Update website. Construction updates will begin the first week of construction.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and never drive distracted in this or any highway construction work zone.
