Home PdC roundabouts

Prairie du Chien, WI - July 29, 2014 - Concrete is being poured by the truckloads, workmen are scurrying around like worker bees to complete three roundabouts by this fall, a huge task.  The Blackhawk roundabout has yet to be started, however they have blocked of Hwy. 18 north of Radio Shack.  It is now almost impossible to get anywhere in PdC following a straight line.  Road Closed and detour signs are everywhere.  With enough knowledge of the city and a good deal of creativity, you might reach your destination.
