A couple of road work projects in Portage County are beginning next week. They include the reconstruction of County Highway “Q” (2nd Street and Main Street) in Amherst Junction from “KK” to East Main Street. Existing pavement and sidewalk will be removed, with all new asphalt being laid down, plus drainage improvements. County “Q” will be closed to thru traffic during the work, so plan alternate routes.
The other project is culvert replacement work being done on County Highway “C”, west of Stevens Point, in the Town of Linwood. County “C” will be closed during that work also, so plan other routes if you’re in that area. Both projects get underway Monday.
