Big dig in Cameron

Heavy equipment showed up recently in Cameron to begin construction on a major street improvement, on the east side of County Hwy. SS, just south of the Mosaic Telecom property. This photo was taken Monday, July 27, 2020. According to Dave Ness, senior engineering technician for Rice Lake-based Cooper Engineering, the project will extend a new village street to the east of Hwy. SS. The nearby entrance to Cameron Middle School will be closed, and a new entrance will be constructed directly across from the new street. Ness said the project also incudes underground utilities, and is meant to serve a new industrial and commercial development in the village. Photo by Jim Bell
