It’ll be slow going on state Highway 29 from the Kewaunee-Brown County line to Green Bay for the next couple of months. And traffic is being detoured while Kewaunee County crews replace a bridge on County Road J.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Northeast Region motorists started a resurfacing and culvert replacement project on Highway 29 in Brown County on Monday. Work is taking place along an eight-mile stretch of 29 from U.S. 141 in the village of Bellevue to the east Brown/Kewaunee County line.

The $3.247 million project will be separated into two phases, with pipe culvert replacement in 2017 and resurfacing in 2018.

Pipe culvert replacement is expected to continue until about Oct. 15. Motorists can expect to encounter temporary lane closures and flagging operations in the project work limits. Resurfacing of Highway 29 begins in spring of 2018 and is expected to finish next July. The highway will remain open during resurfacing utilizing lane closures and flagging operations in the work zone.

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

Meanwhile, the Kewaunee County Highway Department has closed County Road J from the State Highway 42 to Woodside Road to replace a bridge over Sandy Creek in the Town of Carlton.

The highway closing began Aug. 3 and is expected to last approximately six weeks.

Traffic is being detoured onto County Road B and County Road G.
