Status on Road Construction on 35?

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the status of the road construction on I35 in between Pine City and Hinckley? It made for a long drive north a couple Friday nights ago....just wondering if things have improved or if a guy should try and re-do his schedule to avoid heavy traffic times in that area. How's the drive south on Sunday evening say 9pm? Thanks for any information. I'll post next time thru that area.

I have a cabin in NW Wisconsin and went up Friday night the 15th. It was horrible.

I was back up last Friday and it was open going up on the northbound lanes to Hinckley as well as coming back on the southbound side.

You should be good to go.

Going north.

Get off 35 at Rock Creek (exit165).

Take hwy. 61 north to Sandstone, get back on 35.

It's less than 30 mile detour, and a nice drive.

Going south do the opposite.

Also, traffic is indeed much lighter at 9:00 pm. (and 9:00 am)

Both lanes heading north were open when I went up early A.M. on Sept. 30. Heading south in the afternoon the same day it was down to one lane for a stretch...but at that time it wasn't a problem due to traffic being light. Might be swinging thru the area this weekend...I'll post if I do. Thanks.

Went north on 35 morning of 10/13 and it was down to one lane briefly by Hinckly bridge. Heading south on 10/15 both lanes were open. I don't think the construction in this area will be a problem any more (this fall).

Now if I can get the deer to start moving for me as well!

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
