IMPORTANT: READ BEFORE COMING TO GLD!
Due to construction on most of Racine's county highways, detours are needed to get to GLD for the foreseeable future:
IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE:
Highway KR which is the road GLD is on is almost completely torn up. The road is still open, however it is so bumpy that unless you drive 10mph, you might literally break some teeth. Use these detours instead:
Do not get off at Highway KR which is exit 337 like you normally would; instead get off at Highway 11 (Exit 335) and head west for about 4 miles. You will see a Piggly Wiggly, and then right after that, the road 69th Place. Turn left to go south and take 69th all the way to Highway KR. GLD will be on the left less than a quarter mile away. Remember to take your time and drive slowly.
USING HIGHWAY 45:
45 is currently local traffic only from HWY 50 to HWY 11. It is also ground up however it is smooth and not bumpy like KR is. The problem is that there are barricades at every intersection, and it is hard enough to get around them with a 4x4 truck... getting around them with a trailer will be next to impossible and should only be attempted by the very adventurous.
Your best bet is to not take 45 at all, and use HWY 11 instead. Follow the same directions as I-94 if you are going to take HWY 11.
HIGHWAY 142 IS CLOSED:
Highway 142 is closed completely going westbound from 94 and there will be no way to get to GLD using it.

We all hate construction... but most of you know how terrible KR has been for many years... within a few weeks, KR will be freshly paved with no more potholes!
