Road Work Beginning Monday.

 

Maintenance
work will begin Monday for the intersection of Scott Street and Van Dyne Road in the City of Fond du Lac. The Department
of Public Works tells us that beginning Monday, county crews will begin milling
the pavement in preparation for new asphalt. The road is expected to remain
open for east/west traffic with flagmen directing the flow of traffic during
the work. Beginning Thursday, new asphalt will be put down on the intersection,
with traffic being detoured using Peters

day to complete.

 

The
Department of Public Works also says that on Monday, maintenance will be done
to the brick crosswalks on South

be closed completely. The bricks in the crosswalks and the underlying concrete
will be removed with new stamped colored concrete placed in the crosswalk area.
The Forest Avenue
intersection is expected to open by the weekend and Third Street intersection should open by
Monday the 19th. The intersection of Main
and Second Streets will then close on the 19th for the same repair
process.

The

FDL Veteran
Receives a Harley

 

Retired
Army Sargent Dan Tinsley of Fond du Lac was given the keys to a Harley Davidson
Motorcycle on Saturday thanks to a Wisconsin based charity. Hogs for Heroes
made the presentation to Tinsley at Open Road Harley Davidson in Fond du Lac Saturday
afternoon. Hogs for Heroes raises money to help injured Wisconsin
veterans buy a motorcycle. Tinsley served in Iraq and was injured during battle.
He received a purple heart for his service. He returned to Fond du Lac and has been involved with
several veterans causes locally, namely Salute the Troops. Tinsley spoke at the
ceremony about his love for riding motorcycles and how motorcycles can provide
an escape from the day to day challenges that inured veterans face after they
return. KFIZ’s Spencer Wagen had a chance to talk to Tinsley one-on-one. You
can hear the full interview on Monday’s breakfast club.
