Road Construction Coming To La Crosse Area
For 2 weeks later this month, Highway 16 in front of Valley View Mall will shut down for 2 weeks. The Department of Transportation is fixing pot holes and other messes that the winter brought on. Jim Rohe (ROY), with the Wisconsin DOT, explains what work will come to Highway 16.
He says it was up to the public and affected businesses in that stretch to go ahead and shut down for 2 weeks instead of day and night closures that would have extended the project. Other construction will occur at the Sand Lake Road exit on Highway 53, Highway 157 and on I-90.
