Sturgeon Bay YMCA Kid's Club - Thank you!

The Sturgeon Bay Police Department extends a heartfelt thank you to the Sturgeon Bay YMCA Kid's Club for their kindness in making a "Survival Kit for Police."  The kits were delivered this week, with each kit individually addressed to a member of the department with a handwritten card thanking us for keeping them safe.

We are proud to serve our community and we appreciate the thoughtfulness you have shown.  It put a smile on all our faces!  

New J-turn at WIS 57 and County Road C opens in Door County

Intersection safety improvement began September 14

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is announcing the new J-turn at the intersection of WIS 57 and County Road C in Door County will be open for use by Saturday morning, Nov. 21. Construction began September 14, 2015.

The project involved constructing a J-turn intersection at WIS 57 and County Road C to provide safer turning movements at the intersection. The J-turn does not allow left-turn and through movements from County Road C. In order to make these movements, drivers at County Road C have to first turn right then make a U-turn approximately 1/3-mile down the road from the original intersection. For more information regarding J-turn intersections, please see the J-turn webpage at: An informational graphic is also attached below.
Benefits of J-turns include:

Reduce right-angle crashes by decreasing the number of conflict points.

Can often be retrofitted without acquiring additional land.

Lower cost alternative as compared to an interchange.

WisDOT built the first J-turn in 2011 to address multiple crashes on Highway 53 in Douglas County. There were eight injury crashes at the intersection in the five-year period prior to construction and zero since construction. Other J-turns were built in Brown County at WIS 29/County Road VV and Sheboygan County at WIS 23/County M in 2013.
