A new sidewalk was poured along Hwy. 8/CTH SS last week, but there was one problem—a road sign was in the way. The sidewalk was poured around the sign and traffic barrels were later put around the obstruction. Area residents took note of the apparent bungle, shown above as of Monday, Nov. 9, and photos of it were shared widely on social media. The road sign belongs to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and was there before the sidewalk was poured, noted Christina O’Brien with the DOT. As of Tuesday, Nov. 10, the sign had been removed; the hole in the sidewalk will be filled in, O’Brien said. ”Before the end of the year, a newer sign—a bit smaller than the previous one—will be installed,” she added.
