HILBERT – Just when you thought you had the summer road construction detour maze all figured out, the dice are rolling again.
State 57/32 will be closed from Hilbert north to Forest Junction beginning Monday, August 14 for pavement resurfacing and railroad crossing reconstruction. It is expected to remain closed for 10 work days.
Canadian Nation Railroad maintenance personnel have been staging for the railroad crossing work at the north village limits of Hilbert.
The entire project, which includes 6.8 miles of pavement, is scheduled to take 25 days.
Work includes asphalt pavement milling, asphalt pavement resurfacing, gravel shoulders, rumble strip installation, signing, and pavement marking. That work runs from Man-Cal Road (the Brown-Calumet county line) south to Hilbert’s village limits.
Two adjacent railroad crossings just north of Hilbert will be reconstructed due to failing crossing surfaces.
During railroad crossing reconstruction, traffic will be detoured. The anticipated detour duration is two weeks, with traffic on 57/32 detoured over Calumet County PP through Potter to Brillion, then over U.S. 10 from Brillion to Forest Junction.
All other work outside of the railroad crossing reconstruction will be completed using flagging. Motorists should expect delays during hours of construction.
