Village of Ephraim
The Village of Ephraim Streetscape Project is a multi-faceted project in downtown Ephraim including underground utility burial from our Wetland Preserve North to German Rd, new decorative streetlights from Brookside Ln to Anderson Dock, and a reconstruction project of State Highway 42 from our Village Beach north to the Firehouse Marina which is scheduled to begin in March of 2019 and finish by the end of June 2019.
The reconstruction portion of this project will result in a full closure and detour of Highway 42 from March 1, 2019 to May 24, 2019. To accommodate summer tourist traffic the second phase of the project (May 25, 2019 to the end of June 2019) will see construction continue however Hwy 42 will be reopened under flagging operations.

WisDOT / Fish Creek Project
State Highway 42 will be seeing additional roadway construction independant from the Village's project that will also begin in the spring of 2019. WisDOT is currently planning a resurfacing project of Hwy 42 from the town of Gibraltar to the Village of Sister Bay that is, at this time, scheduled for a spring 2019 start. Project details are still tentative as the project is currenlty in the process of being re-bid but is likely to impact Northern Door County traffic in the spring of 2019, Fall of 2019, and Spring of 2020. More information regarding this project can be found on the WisDOT project website below.
