MOUNT PLEASANT, WI — Drivers in the Racine area will need to be aware of lane closures and traffic delays Tuesday as construction crews tend to the latest phase of the Highway 32 construction project in northern Racine County.

According to the Caledonia Police Department, if the weather holds, milling, grading, and paving will be done on the roadway north of the Highway 31 and 32 split.

Traffic will be one-way and a flagger will be present to direct traffic starting at about 7:30 a.m.

Police in Caledonia say there will be delays and traffic backups, and to plan for congestion.

“If you have to go through that intersection to go north, you should either leave early or use Four or Five Mile to go west, and then north at Highway 38 or any other street,” Police said Monday. “If weather does not allow this to happen on Tuesday, it will be done on Wednesday.”
