It took 8 years but it was finally finished last fall… Highway 42/57 from Green Bay to Door County, that is. What was once a two lane road is now a four lane highway which makes the drive from Green Bay to Sturgeon Bay quicker and much more safe. Although the highway bypasses Dykesville, a quaint little village, it gets travelers to Door County a lot quicker and… did I say safer? From this sign just crossing into Door County from Kewaunee County it takes maybe 30 minutes to Egg Harbor… keep in mind I am a slow driver.
Before the new road, the Friday night drive into Door County was practically bumper to bumper with crazed drivers weaving in and out of traffic to pass. Not so anymore, guests can enjoy a much easier, but still beautiful drive to their favorite vacation destination.
