County shop project underway

 Work is well underway on the Barron County Highway Department project. Work continues on the wash bay and cold storage shed west of Hwy. 25, with setting of the precast walls for the wash bay beginning later this month and concrete work continuing on the cold storage. River Avenue was dug twice by contractor Erickson Excavating, because the initial 4-inch water line crews installed had to be upgraded to 6-inch. Some building removal and other prep work is occurring on the east side of Hwy. 25.
