STH 42 construction project from CTH BB to City of Kewaunee

(Kewaunee) To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Governor Evers signed a $5.1 million contract to improve 9.9 miles of WIS 42 from the south Kewaunee/Manitowoc County line to Baumeister Drive in the city of Kewaunee. The project will begin Tuesday, June 1, 2021 and scheduled to finish in October of 2021. WIS 42 will be closed and detoured when construction begins.

Northeast Asphalt, Inc. from Greenville, Wis. is the Prime Contractor.

Project improvements
This is a resurfacing-level project with replacement of two large box culvert under the roadway. Work includes:
• Mill and resurface the existing asphalt pavement
• Replace deteriorating box culvert 300′ south of Lakeview Drive
• Replace deteriorating box culvert ¾-mile north of County J
• Repair/replace various culvert pipes in work zone
• Storm sewer, beamguard and pavement marking
• Rumble strip installation
• Minor grading and shoulder widening
• Please see the WIS 42 Project Construction websites below for construction exhibits and displays.

Traffic impacts
WIS 42 will be CLOSED AND DETOURED to through traffic from Tuesday, June 1, 2021 to September 2021 for culvert work and construction on the lower level of pavement.
• Access will be maintained to businesses and properties in the work zone.
• Temporary business signing information is available on the project website below.
• Flagging operations will be used for work conducted not under full closure.

Detour
• WIS 42 northbound: County BB west to County AB north to WIS 29 east back to WIS 42.
• WIS 42 southbound: WIS 29 west to County AB south to County BB east to WIS 42.

Project benefits
The project will address minor deformations and cracking in the pavement surface which will reduce surface roughness and provide smoother driving surface for motorists. The asphalt overlay will also extend the life of the existing pavement. Upgrades to guard rail and the addition of centerline and edge line rumble strips will enhance safety.

Increase in Thefts/Burglaries

The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department is investigating numerous thefts of catalytic converters from motor vehicles. The areas around Luxemburg and Algoma have been targeted. Citizens are asked to be on the lookout for any suspicious activity around isolated vehicles or vehicles that are left unattended on isolated properties and parking areas. These incidents have taken place after dark as well as during the day time.

Please take the time to secure your vehicles and park them in well-lit locations or where you can view your vehicles. The more you can do to prevent your vehicle from being a target the better.

If you have any information that would assist in the apprehension of the person(s) committing these crimes please contact the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department (920)388-7108.

We have received some calls regarding a solicitation that some may have received in the mail. This is a legitimate funding initiative being conducted by the Badger Sate Sheriffs' Association. If anyone has any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

-Sheriff Matt Joski-

In the coming weeks, you or a business you own may receive one of the letters attached to this post. The letter will most likely come from your Sheriff, but it will have the executive director of the BSSA's name on it in some locations.

This fundraising campaign aims to help the BSSA continue its strong support for the Office of Sheriff here in Wisconsin. The BSSA provides various services to the Sheriffs to include training, legal research, legislative assistance, and so much more. Now more than ever we need to continue this effort and look at ways to expand our services to the Sheriffs to help them better serve their counties.

Our goal is to engage more of our citizens in the BSSA by creating honorary memberships for those that choose to participate. We would love to have you partner with us and help to support the Office of Sheriff in Wisconsin.

If you have questions, feel free to contact the BSSA Executive Director at the following email: [email protected] or your local Sheriff.

As today is designated as "Administrative Professionals Day", I would like to give a heartfelt shout out to Mary Berkovitz and Angie Mueller who have dedicated themselves to the service of our community in the very challenging roles as Sheriff's Administrative Assistants. As part of my annual report out to the community I recently provided some background into the work that these two amazing ladies do for our department and I would like to share that article.

In every organization there is a system of processes which allows for the smooth and reliable transfer of information from one component of the organization to another. It is the center of all activity and its success relies on constant communication and the ability to adjust to changes on a moment’s notice. For the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department these processes involve the handling of all documentation from traffic citations to accident reports, civil process to criminal charge requests, juvenile referrals to open records requests. They involve providing information to the general public as well as agencies throughout Kewaunee County, the State of Wisconsin and in some cases the Federal Government.
All of this activity falls under the duties of “Sheriff’s Administrative Assistant” and in Kewaunee County we have two of the best; Mary Berkovitz and Angie Mueller. To provide a glimpse into the daily life of these two will be difficult in the space I have available for this article, but I will try to provide a broad overview.
From the moment a report is generated to the time when it goes to court our Sheriff’s Administrative Assistants are a vital link between the responding officers to the Supervisory staff where reports are filed reviewed proofed, and ultimately submitted to either the District Attorney’s Office, Human Services or the many other agencies with whom we work with on a daily basis. Here at the Sheriff’s Department all reports are dictated by the responding Officers which then require them to be transcribed by the Sheriff’s Administrative Assistants. This accounts for a great deal of the volume of work which is done by these two employees. Beyond just transcribing they also must make sure all of the incidents are coded correctly so that the monthly reports to the Department of Justice are accurate and reflect the actual offenses occurring in Kewaunee County.
Beyond the world of law enforcement reports they are also involved in the civil process work that is done at the Sheriff’s Department. This involves the service of court orders ranging from sheriff sales to writ of executions, evictions to restraining orders. Even after the reports have left the Sheriff’s Department and the cases have moved forward in the legal process, many times we receive requests for various reports which these two employees facilitate.
In the world of law enforcement where documentation is everything, the need for accurate and timely reports is vital and we are very fortunate to have two dedicated individuals who make sure the “I’s” have been dotted and the “T’s” crossed. Thank you Mary and Angie!

Hats off to the great staff of the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department. As a follow up to an excellent response authored by Sheriff Joski back in the spring of 2018, the writer inquired on the seemingly relaxed policies regarding modified exhaust violations on motorcycles that seem to get a pass from State Statute 347.39(1) as they rattle windows in our small town businesses and residences. With the proliferation of aggressive personal pick-up trucks on the road lately, I would go a step further and ask why is this being allowed? I know we have bigger issues but, from recent posts from neighboring counties as well as comments from Kewaunee county residents, there seems to be traction on wanting action on this growing noise epidemic.
How come Pine Grove Road and other side roads are slippery as can be!! Please salt or sand these roads
Is the Kewaunee County Sheriff's dept. taking tips on people that defy the "safer at home" and social distancing directives from Gov. Tony Evers? And can these tips remain anonymous?
Well Here is the latest of scams. "Publishers Clearing House" called to tell me that I won $1.5 million dollars and a 2020 Mercedes. This came from a blocked number. I was very careful how I answered questions, as he made sure I was dressed for pictures and my driveway was clear for the delivery of "my new car". Eventually we came to the point of needing to know what I needed to do to get my money and car. I needed the number he provided and a "claim card". This claim card can be PURCHASED from CVS. I explained that I do not have a CVS and I could also get it from my local Dollar Store. I asked how much it was....and it was for the $299. Bingo....I was done and told him No Thank You. BE AWARE AMERICA! A NEW SCAM!!!
Thank you!
Thank You Deputy Larry O! You came out in your PJs to see what was up @11 pm. We were trying to catch my runaway furbaby... He went back, got dressed & helped corral him in the field... He even went back & got him fresh cooked chicken. I can never thank you enough! Mr Larry O...YOU are an AWESOME deputy... ABOVE & BEYOND the call of duty & YOU are an AMAZING Person. THANK YOU 😊
Thank you to all for another successful Kettle Campaign!
I would like to say a huge thank you to ALL who donate their money and time to the Shop with a Cop event for children. My grandson participated yesterday and he couldn't stop talking about it the rest of the evening.. He said he was going to be a cop just like "Logan" and maybe a chef too so he can cook for all them... He was so proud of the gifts he picked out for his parents and his sisters. So thank you thank you thank you again!!!!
I would like to know who gives authority for ur investigator's to pull minors outta class and talk to them without a parent present.. Let alone without parents permission no matter what the situation is.. School should also know better..
