Ready to rumble

Sign says “closed,” but the road is “open” – Highway workers (visible at right background) were on hand Tuesday afternoon, June 18, 2019, to remove barricades from Wisconsin Hwy. 25 near 17th Street in the town of Barron. Earlier the same day, county dispatchers notified area law enforcement and first responders that work had been completed on a new culvert and roadway (center background) which had been under construction for much of the previous month. The work is now done, linking Barron with Wisconsin Hwy. 48 four miles north of this location Photo by Bob Zientara
