Wis Hwy 42 Resurfacing Project Detours, road closures & business information

One of the major long-term projects in town is the WIS 42 Resurfacing Project, scheduled for construction in 2018/2019. The total project extends from Bluff Lane in Gibraltar, through the village of Ephraim, and up to Country Walk Drive in Sister Bay, with the Town of Gibraltar's Streetscape and Lighting Design Project (among other projects) corresponding with the portion of the Hwy 42 resurfacing project that runs through town.

  • Extend sidewalk, curb, gutter, and storm sewer in Gibraltar to improve pedestrian safety and access to Gibraltar Schools, Door County Auditorium, and the Northern Door YMCA.
