The latest traffic circle in La Crosse isn't meant just as a way to slow traffic. It's also meant as a so-called 'rain circle.' A way to soak up some rain water at 20th and Farnam on the southside to prevent flooding at the intersection. Public works director Dale Hexom has never been certain that it will work as advertised. And still isn't certain it will do much to alleviate flooding that occurs with heavy rainfall. Besides that traffic circle, another one may go in just a few blocks away.
A bomb scare has cleared out several blocks near downtown Tomah.
Tomah police say the car was found parked near the First Bank of Tomah. Right now all lanes of Highway 12 are blocked off from Monroe street to Council street. A four block area in the city has been evacuated. A robot from the Fort McCoy Fire Department is also there. The car is actually parked in an intersection of Superior and Monowau Streets. The Dane County Bomb Squad is on scene as of 9:45pm and federal agents have been called out.
