Highway 35 Road Closure

Hwy 35 Road Closure for Sewer Main Repair
June 3, 2019 By Fountain City

The City of Fountain City will be repairing and replacing sewer and water lines on a portion of our utilities on the north end of town. Highway 35 with be CLOSED nearest the Army Corps of Engineers from June 10th, 2019 to approximately July 3rd, 2019. With a project of this size we hope everything goes smoothly so that we are able to stay within that time frame however we are dealing with very old lines in bad shape.

There will be no thru traffic in this location. The WI Department of Transportation always routes highway detours on a HWY to HWY basis so the official detour route from the north is HWY 35 to HWY 37 to HWY 10 to HWY 93 to HWY 95. This is the best route for large vehicles. There are many other township and county roads that will shorten the detour but is NOT recommended for large vehicles.

We understand this will be a large inconvenience to all traffic but there is no other option for the type of repairs needed. We love living on the beauty of the Mississippi River and bluffs but “close quarters” of a river community does impact where utility services can be located and therefore impacts other areas when repairs are needed. Our contractors will be working as quickly as they can but many factors will contribute to the timeframe.

You can contact City Hall or any member of council with inquiries. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
