Drivers who make the trip from Kewaunee to Green Bay regularly will be experiencing what the state Department of Transportation describes as minor delays starting Tuesday, as highway resurfacing of State Highway 29 in Brown County gets underway.

The DOT Northeast Region office the work on Highway 29 from the Kewaunee-Brown County line to U.S. 141 in the village of Bellevue is expected to be completed by July 31.

The highway will remain open during construction, but motorists will encounter lane closures and flagging operations and minor delays can be expected, the DOT said.. The project will finish by July 31 of this year.

Crews replaced 15 culvert crossings in the project work zone in 2017. This resurfacing is a continuation that two-year, $3.247 million project to improve 7.8 miles of Highway 29.

The work will involve milling and paving the highway using cold-in-place recycling, new pavement markings and signing, and a new centerline and shoulder rumble strips.

The contractor is required to provide full, two-lane operations throughout the project during non-work times. Construction details for this project will be provided weekly on the Northeast Region Weekly Highway Construction Update website.
