MANITOWOC COUNTY – Governor Scott Walker approved $15 million to improve 13.7 miles of I-43 in Manitowoc County from the Sheboygan-Manitowoc county line north to U.S. 10 and State 310.
Construction is scheduled to begin this coming Monday, March 28, and be complete in November of 2016.
NE Asphalt, Inc., of Greenville is the prime contractor.
The project involves milling and resurfacing of I-43 in the project limits. Work also includes base patching of existing roadway, new concrete overlays on bridge decks, including overpass structures, concrete approach slab replacements, concrete surface repairs, and structure wing wall replacement. Crews will also upgrade beam guard, adjust inlet structures, and replace various end walls.
Traffic impacts include lane closures on I-43 for bridge and paving operations. One lane of I-43 in each direction will remain open at all times. There will be short-term closures of some of the overpass roadways and off-ramps.
Motorists are reminded to use caution and remain alert when driving through this or any work zone.
