US Highway 2 Reopened After June Flooding

US Highway 2 is open after June flooding washed out a segment of the road near Ino.  Diana Maas, spokeswoman with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, said it cost roughly $2.2-million to repair the stretch of highway.  “We replaced it with a bridge due to the hydraulics in the area, the risk of future flooding, and…to accommodate the trout stream,” she said.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation was already planning to build a bridge in 2019, but flood damage moved up the project.  Maas said US Highway 2 is a major route for northern Wisconsin, with 4,230 people driving east to west each day.
