The detour route for Prairie du Chien’s Marquette Road construction project shifted on Saturday to North Beaumont Road due to rising water levels on the Mississippi River. The river rose over North Main Street during the weekend. The Prairie du Chien Public Works Department placed “No Parking” signs on Washington Street and Beaumont Road Friday in preparation for the change.
The parking restrictions and traffic flow are as follows:
•Washington Street from Main to Beaumont, both sides are restricted.
•North Beaumont Road from Washington Street to Frederick Street are restricted on the west side.
•North Beaumont from Washington to mid-block to the north is restricted on the east side.
•North Main from Washington Street to mid-block to the south is restricted on the west side.
•A temporary stop sign is located on North Beaumont Road at the intersection of McLeod Street, stopping both northbound and southbound traffic.
