County VV Project In FDL Nearing Completion

The Fond du Lac County Highway VV or Pioneer Road project will be wrapping up in the next couple of weeks. The work from Hickory Street to Rogersville Road started in April. Military Road is open to businesses, but not to thru traffic. It was closed for 60 days. County Highway Commissioner Tom Janke says there still is some work that has to be complete there. That includes landscaping, completion of traffic signals and lighting. Pavement marking also needs to be finished and a fence that will be installed along the retaining wall. He says the two biggest improvements will be the new roundabout at County VV and Military Road and the traffic signals near the main plant entrance to Mercury Marine. Work on the $5.5 million project is expected to be completed in the middle of this month.
