GREEN BAY - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region reminds motorists that work begins Monday, May 9, 2022 on 6.6 miles of WIS 32/57 from the Brown/Calumet County line in the town of Holland to Duester Street in the town of Wrightstown, Brown County. Construction is expected to finish at the end of July 2022. The highway will remain open during most of construction. Man Cal Road will close for safety improvement modifications.
The $3.4 million project will resurface WIS 32, realign the Man Cal Road intersection and add a right turn lane at Hill Road/County X intersection. Other construction includes culvert work, box culvert extension, centerline rumble strips, signing and pavement marking.
Roadway resurfacing will reduce surface roughness, provide a smoother and safer ride for motorists, extend the life of the pavement structure and reduce future maintenance costs. Repair of culverts help ensure adequate drainage to mitigate possible flooding. Rumble strips will alert errant vehicles leaving the lane of travel. Realigning the intersection at Man Cal Road to a 90-degree approach angle with WIS 32 will increase safety by providing motorists with better vision angles to see oncoming traffic.
WIS 32 resurfacing will be conducted under intermittent shoulder closures and flagging operations.
The WIS 32/WIS 96 roundabout in Greenleaf will be closed up to two days (anticipated in June or July) to complete paving through the roundabout.
Man Cal Road will be closed for about four weeks during reconstruction of the intersection.
