Pedestrian crossings to go near Winneshiek, Crooked Oar

By Ted Pennekamp


The County Highway K Project in Crawford County just north of Prairie du Chien got underway in earnest on Monday and was expected to take three or four days to complete.

Crawford County Highway Commissioner Kyle Kozelka said the project is an asphalt mill and overlay from Frederick Street to Cliffwood Drive, and also includes beam guard replacement at the Campbell Coulee Bridge. 

In addition, Kozelka said two pedestrian crossings on County K were requested to be placed on the north end of County K near the Winneshiek Bar and Grill, and also the Crooked Oar Bar. The request came from Barron Dillman, at Sports Unlimited Campground, due to heavy pedestrian traffic to, and from, these locations.

“Overall, it’s a very simple and quick project,” said Kozelka.

Kozelka said the County K Project is a Surface Transportation Program Rural project, which allocates federal funds to assist in rural highway improvement projects. The project is cost shared at an 80/20 split, of federal, and local funds, respectively. The project has an estimated construction cost of approximately $632,000.

Other large projects for 2021 include County H Bridge Replacement - Crawford County, Tiller Road Bridge Replacement - town of Clayton, Marietta Valley Road Bridge Replacement - town of Marietta, Byers Road Bridge Replacement - town of Scott, and various culvert replacements on State Highway 131 between Steuben and Gays Mills.
