Engineering Firm to Give Bliss Road Spring Eval Next Week, Design Coming
Still some options open for Bliss road in La Crosse. An engineering firm is expected to take another look at the washed out road to Grandad Bluff next week before putting together a design to fix the road. The city council may or may not choose to do the fix based on cost but Tony Hutchens, from the city's public works department, says that won't dictate the scope of the design for repairs. He says the engineering firm will put together a design on the cost of repairing just the parts of Bliss that were damaged during last summer's heavy rains. Probably a half million dollars worth of work.
The council may decide to shelve the design and not fix Bliss road at all.
