Rockslide Cleanup Done At Genoa
But Wisconsin D-O-T maintenance specialist Pete Strachan says the Thanksgiving rockslide near Genoa was much bigger than the normal slides in the area. Strachan says boulders the size of a pickup tumbled onto Highway 35. The road was blocked for most of Thanksgiving morning, and some stones knocked out power lines in Vernon County.
On Monday, highway workers finished the job of breaking up those rocks and hauling them away. Strachan gives credit to Vernon and Crawford Counties and to Xcel Energy for their quick response to the rockslide and power outage.
