LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - After nearly two weeks, Highway 16 by Valley View Mall is once again open for traffic.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation closed the stretch between Highway 157 and South Kinney Coulee Road to replace the pavement.
The majority of the work was finished on Thursday, according to the DOT, eight days ahead of schedule.
The project should be completed next week once crews finish work on single lanes of traffic. There are some lane closures involved, but the DOT doesn't expect them to impact on traffic through the area.
The total cost of the project, which started on April 28, was $1.7 million.
