The County of Kenosha is beginning its pavement preservation project in the Village and Town of Somers starting Wednesday, May 20th according to Gary A. Sipsma, Director of Highway/Highway Commissioner for Kenosha County. The project involves overlay of new asphalt, new pavement re-striping, railroad crossing marking, and crushed limestone shouldering. The project extends from I-94 east to Highway EA at Somers Elementary School.
New Highway E Turn Lanes for Somers Elementary School
A turn lane will be added on the eastbound lane of Highway E on the north side of the school to accommodate parents who drop-off and pick-up their children. In addition, a passing lane will be added on the westbound lane of Highway E on the north side of the school, allowing motorists to travel directly through the area without waiting for traffic that turns into the schoolyard. Both road improvements will eliminate vehicle back-ups during morning and afternoon school activity.
Highway E Will Remain Open During Construction
Flag people will assist in traffic flow control. There may be brief delays. We appreciate your patience.
