Town Beach Project
Construction of the public bathroom facilities at the Town Beach is underway and set to be completed in July. On Friday, June 7, a key component of the beach renovation project (and reason for the heavy construction equipment and large staging area) was installed: the Vortechs stormwater treatment unit. You can read an update about the installation and how the Vortechs unit works here.
Hwy 42 Project
Construction details regarding the Hwy 42 resurfacing project through Fish Creek were outlined at a public construction update meeting held May 6 at the Gibraltar Middle School gym. At that meeting, Jeremy Ashauer, WisDOT Project Manager, presented updated staging and traffic impact information and addressed questions from the audience.
You can view the complete PowerPoint presentation from that meeting here. The updated construction time frame is set to begin October 15, 2019 and end in June 2020. In an effort to make the project as hassle-free as possible for residents and visitors alike, the project is being divided into three construction stages.
Stage 1 is divided into three phases.
Stage 1: Phase A is scheduled for October 15 - 20.
Stage 1: Phase B is scheduled for October 21 - noon October 25
Stage 1: Phase C is scheduled for October 28 - Winter Shutdown 2019
During Stage 1, the detour is for southbound traffic only. However, from noon October 25 - October 27, WIS Hwy 42 will be open to bi-directional traffic for the Fish Creek Jack O' Lantern Days. The official detour route for southbound traffic during this time is Cty Hwy F in Fish Creek to Cty Hwy A to Cty Hwy E in Egg Harbor.
Stage 2 is scheduled to being in early March (as soon as the weather allows work to being) and end prior to Memorial Day 2020.
The final stage, Stage 3 is scheduled to begin Memorial Day and wrap up by the end of June 2020. Stages 2 and 3 will include a hard closure of the section of road that stretches from the top of the hill (just north of the intersection of WIS Hwy 42 and Cty Hwy F) until just past the YMCA.
Updates and the most current information, including traffic impact and detour maps, can be found on the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s 511 Wisconsin Construction Projects website.
Uptown Project (Redmann Property)
At the Annual Town Meeting on April 16, 2019, the Town Board presented under Old Business the Town's option to purchase the Redmann property, a 195-acre parcel located above and below the bluff south of town. This option gives the Town the option, but not the obligation, to purchase the property. The price is $2.15 million.
Details about the property, the history of how the Town first became aware and interested in it back in 2014,
and some of the potential uses for the property were presented in a slideshow presented at the Annual Meeting.
A PDF of the slideshow presentation is available here. Hard copies of the presentation can be requested
by either calling or emailing the Town office.
A complete list of the goals outlined in the Town's Comprehensive Plan that this project could help achieve
can be viewed here.
Public meetings are currently taking place to discuss the feasibility of the project. Be sure to sign up with our notifications service to receive text or email notifications about these meetings and other related information. Meeting dates and agendas will also be accessible through the website's calendar page.
As the exploratory stage of the project moves forward, public input will be a critical component of the process. Be sure to check this page often for updates, opportunities for public involvement, and other facts and information about the project.
