Pioneer Road Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Held

15-Nov-2017

The Pioneer Road or Fond du Lac County Highway VV road project is complete. Officials held a ribbon-cutting near the Mercury Marine Plant 10 entrance on a wet and windy Wednesday afternoon. County Highway Commissioner Tom Janke told the gathering the project started with conversations with Mercury Marine about improving the corridor. Federal funding combined with county and city funds made the improvements possible. Federal funding provided $2.8 million for design and construction, and local funding provided the other $3.5 million that was needed. County Executive Al Buechel says the road needed upgrading especially with the number of jobs Mercury has added with the $800 million in improvements it has made to its Fond du Lac facilities. Among the improvements for the road is a roundabout at Pioneer and Military Road, a better entrance to Fleet Farm, and traffic signals for a main entrance for Mercury employees.

When is somebody going to realize that roundabouts are a huge waste of money. Another dumb idea
