Highway construction: Earlier than expected
The state's Department of Transportation has moved up the schedule for the Highway 35/65 construction project affecting River Falls. Instead of starting in mid-April, as announced earlier, the work will begin Monday morning, March 29. Striped barrels have already been placed on the highway shoulders of a four-mile stretch.
Highway 35 on the north end of River Falls all the way south to the intersection of Highway 65 and Cemetery Road will be completely repaved.
