Could Bliss Road be reopened to one lane traffic?
Many people living in the town of Shelby hope the answer is 'yes,' but the La Crosse Public Works Department says it's too early to know. Assistant public works director Tony Hutchens says a consultant will check out the road up Grandad Bluff on Friday.

The town of Shelby is offering to pay for a traffic signal that could regulate one-lane traffic on Bliss Road.
