US 51 Project in Minocqua ready to start April 1Submitted: 03/20/2013
Story By Shardaa Gray


MINOCQUA - The Minocqua community will see some changes to Highway 51 soon. A big construction project will begin Monday, April 1st.

It will start on US-51 between Front Street and Old Highway 70.

This project will add new street lights, replacing storm water lines, update sidewalks and bike paths and replace the current five lane cross-section with new asphalt pavement.

The DOT will also install a crosswalk just south of Rogers drive. Stage one will happen from April first to June 28th.

The second stage will run from September third to late November. It will likely cause plenty of traffic headaches. For the majority of the traffic construction, at least one lane of traffic will be open in each direction.

The project is supposed to be done by late November this year.

There will be no construction activities on the roads during the month of July and August.

Students at Phillips High School got to learn about how hard it is to drive while impaired or distracted.

The Phillips Police Department and school district hosted The Save A Life Tour for students Friday afternoon. It teaches kids the negative impacts of impaired driving.

Students took turns in two different chairs to feel what distracted driving feels like.

"One is simulating being impaired or intoxicated, and it shows what happens while the students are driving that," said Phillips Police Department Lieutenant Al Cummings. "The other one is regarding distracted driving, and actually students need to answer text messages while they're driving."
