Viroqua’s Main Street patch project got underway this week with lots of construction vehicles and crews taking up the center lane. Work began right after Labor Day on Tuesday and is expected to last a month or more.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the first phase will be from the Decker St. crossing to Hickory St. and during this time from roughly Sept. 3 to the 12th parking will be very limited in the downtown area. Phase two will start September 16 and will include work from Decker St. north to around Wal-Mart, and from Hickory St. south to Rusk St.
City Administrator John Severson said the city has been asking the state to repair the street almost since it was renovated in 199 since some of the panels that are being replaced have cracked and buckled over the years. The state is taking on the $370,000 cost with the city picking up about $20,000 of the work.
