Project Update: S Neenah Ave from HWY 42/57 to E Yew Street

The pavement replacement on S Neenah Ave from HWY 42/57 to E Yew Street will begin slightly ahead of the original schedule and start tomorrow (Sept. 9th). If things go well both layers of asphalt should be completed by the end of Friday (Sept. 10th). After the pavement replacement is complete a little misc. cleanup may be needed but the roadway will then reopen to full traffic.

In order to safely and efficiently complete the work the current roadway closure will remain active (see attached map) while the pavement replacement is taking place. Please avoid using the closed project areas unless absolutely necessary. There are many alternate routes around the area so please use them if at all possible.

Sincerely,

Chad Shefchik
City Engineer

9/1/2021 UPDATE: The contractor’s milling crew is running slightly behind schedule so the asphalt removal will not begin until tomorrow (9/2/2021). Therefore, S Neenah Ave will remain open for 1 more day but will close as described below tomorrow morning. The remaining schedule looks to still be ok at this time.

Project Update: S Neenah Ave from HWY 42/57 to E Yew Street

Our contractor just emailed me their updated schedule for the pavement removal and replacement on S Neenah Ave from HWY 42/57 to E Yew Street. If the weather cooperates and things stay on schedule then we should see the asphalt removal start this Wednesday (September 1st) with final grading and manhole adjustments to occur on September 2nd, 3rd, and 7th. If the removal and grading get completed as scheduled then the repaving will take place on Friday September 10th. If anything occurs that will cause changes to this schedule I will send out further updates as needed.

In order to safely and efficiently complete the work the previous roadway closure will restart on the morning of Wednesday September 1st. Therefore, starting September 1, 2021 S Neenah Ave from HWY 42/57 to E Yew Street will be closed to traffic (see attached map showing the roadway closure). Therefore, all employees and trucks for shipping / receiving will need to use Clay Banks Road, Shiloh Road, or S Lansing Ave to gain entry into the industrial park and to your location. This roadway closure will remain in effect until the repaving is completed.

Sincerely,

Chad Shefchik

Sturgeon Bay Prepares Bid to become NERR Site

The City of Sturgeon Bay’s newly appointed Ad Hoc NERR Advisory Committee is busy preparing a bid for the City to become the home of the bay of Green Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR). NERRs are a partnership between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and coastal states to study, protect, and conserve nationally significant coastal and estuary systems to support the health of a reserves’ ecosystem, economy, and communities. The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay led the effort to establish a NERR in the region and is currently engaged in the competitive site selection process.

Sturgeon Bay’s NERR Advisory Committee is led by Co-chairs Caitlin Oleson and Mark Holey. Oleson was a member of a Door County grassroots group who wanted to bring a university research presence to Door County because water is so important to the economics of the county. Her efforts led to a grant from the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program that supported the feasibility study, conducted through UWGB and lead by Oleson, which ultimately resulted in the NOAA’s decision to bring a NERR to the bay of Green Bay.

Co-chair Mark Holey, a fish biologist and avid trout fisherman, led the Green Bay office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which afforded him the opportunity to work on a Great Lakes-wide basis to conserve native fish species. Upon his retirement, after 39 years of public service, Mark was recognized with the Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor to be granted by the department of Interior, which oversee the U.S. Fish and Wildlife.

Working with Oleson and Holey are Committee members Laurel Hauser, Gregg Meissner, Matthew Peter, and Charlie Henriksen. The Committee meets regularly at The Crossroads at Big Creek and meetings are open to the public.

The Committee has collected 17 Letters of Support, two of which are resolutions, from individuals and organizations including The Crossroads at Big Creek, Door County Land Trust, Door County Maritime Museum, Door County Community Foundation, Door County Economic Development Corporation, Destination Sturgeon Bay, Destination Door County, Sturgeon Bay Sport Fishing Association, and municipalities throughout the County. In addition to their work to gain support from the community, the group researches site evaluation criteria to evaluate existing publicly owned land within the City of Sturgeon Bay for construction of a NERR Visitor Center.

The City of Sturgeon Bay is at the center of some of the highest aquatic biodiversity anywhere in the Great Lakes due to its proximity to both Green Bay and Lake Michigan – from areas of the Fox River impacted by agriculture and industry to near-pristine bays and estuaries along the northern shores of Door County. Twenty-nine State Natural Areas and more than 26,000 acres of protected land that support fish and wildlife habitat are found in Door County.

Becoming the home to the NERR for the greater Green Bay Ecosystem will bring benefits to the City of Sturgeon Bay, such as an exemplary visitor center providing international exposure and a powerful tourist draw, increased research dollars and assistance stewarding local aquatic treasures, local economic development, educational resources, and unique recreational opportunities.

To learn more about the bay of Green Bay NERR designation process, a free presentation by Emily Tyner, Director of Freshwater Strategy at UW-Green Bay, hosted by the Door County Environmental Council will be held on July 27th at 7pm at the Door county Maritime Museum, 120 N. Madison Ave., in Sturgeon Bay or via Zoom at dcec-wi.org. Additional information regarding the City of Sturgeon Bay’s effort to become the next NERR site can be found at the City website https://www.sturgeonbaywi.org/
