CALEDONIA, WI — As road construction continues in earnest on Highway 32 in northern Racine County, the Caledonia Police Department is alerting the public to a new street sign.

“In case you missed this, and by the number of messages I have gotten about this, a lot of people have, there is a new sign at Highway 32 and Middle Road,” Caledonia Police said this week. “The NO TURN ON RED sign was placed due to blockage of the Four And A Half Mile Rd. and Middle Rd. intersection caused by traffic congestion.”

Police said the purpose of the sign is to give a break in traffic to allow left turns to be made on to Middle Road. The sign is temporary and will be removed upon completion of the Highway 32 project, police said.
