Status on Road Construction on 35?

Recommended Posts

FL SNIPER

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!

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
