Another Summer, More Construction

This summer, highway 22 between highway 141 and Oconto Falls will be under construction. There are two ways to get into town. One would be to take County I from Stiles on 141 into town. This will be open all summer. The official detour is taking County A in Lena west to County I south. In mid-July, the detour will take County A all the way to County B south in Spruce. The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-August. Hopefully this will be the last summer of new directions!

Update 5/26: The project is running ahead of schedule so on the 30th the detour will be moved to County B. If they stay on this schedule the project will be done by mid-July.
