The Prairie du Chien Public Works Department will start removing several streets on St. Feriole Island this week.
The work will begin with saw cutting of the asphalt at intersections. The asphalt will be removed and the areas will be back filled with top soil and seeded down.
The streets scheduled to be removed at this time are:
•Fisher Street from 4th to 5th,
•Brisbois Street from Villa Louis Road to 2nd Street, and
•4th Street from Brisbois to Bolvin Street.
The city council originally approved removal of the streets over one year ago, due to their deterioration, lack of usage and cost of repair/maintenance. The public works committee and the council revisited the discussion in July and August this year, at which time closure of the above streets was re-approved and closure of a couple others was postponed. It was decided that a bicycle/walking path will replace Fisher Street, from 4th to 5th, once it is removed.
