Knocking at the city's door
Work on the final leg of the new four-lane Highway 64 into New Richmond could be completed ahead of schedule.
"I've heard a rumor that we're more than six weeks ahead," said Jim Bednar, project manager for the state road project. "But I'd say we're maybe one or two weeks ahead of schedule."
The official deadline for completion of the highway is the first part of November. Quite a bit of extensive work still remains to be completed before that deadline is achieved.
