TOMAHAWK - If you plan to travel in Tomahawk on north fourth street, you might want to take an alternate route.

Construction started July 17th between Somo Avenue and River Street.

Construction workers are repaving the road, fixing sidewalks and putting in decorative street lighting.

The 1.3 million dollar project will be paid for a few ways.

These include general tax roll, finance through the city and a new special assessment tool.

The road will be open and functional in early September.

But crews will continue working on landscaping and light poles after then.

NORTHWOODS - Many people used the warm weekend weather to enjoy some outdoor activities. The loggers from Enterprise Forest Products spent all weekend outside as well. But they were working to bring wood out of the forest before the ground thaws. 

The soft ground is not good for loggers. Once the ground thaws, trucks and machinery will no longer be supported. They have to go out before the ground thaws to avoid damaging the land.

"We don't want to make a mess, we don't want to harm the land and so when that ground is soft, our machines rut the land. We can't do that," said owner of Enterprise Forest Products Dennis Schoeneck.

ONEIDA COUNTY - This weekend many of us may have seen images of a pickup truck falling through the ice on Lake Michigan. Some trucks even fell through the ice in Wausau.

So, how safe is the ice in the Northwoods?

DNR Conservation Warden Supervisor Dave Walz says this time of year the ice can melt fast, so anglers should be aware of it. He says it also depends on the lake.

"We've seen anywhere some still on the Rainbow Flowage 24 inches of ice out there this last weekend," Walz says. "A few other lakes we've seen it as thin as six inches of ice."

Walz said no one fell through the ice this weekend in the Northwoods.

No matter the temperature, even if it's below zero, it's never a guarantee that ice is safe.

"Just remember, it's never 100 percent safe out there," Walz said. "It's always at your own risk."
Walz said you should always fish with a partner for safety.

The last day ice shanties can be on lakes is March 19.
