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!

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
