NASEWAUPEE - State 57 opened during the noon hour after being closed in both directions Wednesday morning south of Sturgeon Bay because of low-hanging power lines over the four-lane highway in the wake of Tuesday's winter storm.

The closure was from 57's intersection with County H in Brussels on the south end and State 42/County MM on the north end.

The Door County Sheriff's Office said on its Facebook page to "proceed with caution as utility crews are still servicing issues along the highway and many other roadway systems throughout Door County."

As of 1 p.m., Wisconsin Public Service reported 15,056 customers without power in the county as crews worked to restore electricity across northeast Wisconsin.
