Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

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.
