Onalaska, WI (WXOW) - Road construction has been very big this year in the Coulee Region. Luckily as of Friday the 22, residents of Onalaska are finally able to use 12th Avenue South. The road had been closed since early this year. 

“It's been a busy summer for road construction,” said Onalaska Mayor Joe Chilsen, “Detours are never fun but our citizens were unfailingly patient. The modifications to East Main and Theater Road have significantly improved traffic flow and with the opening of 12th, Crossing Meadows is now once again easily accessible. I'd like to thank everyone for their patience and our Street Department for all their hard work.”

12th Avenue will still have ongoing construction until Labor Day according to the Street Department. This means there may be limited lane usage but traffic will still be allowed through. 12th Avenue is a major artery in Onalaska providing easy access to the businesses in Crossing Meadows including the Onalaska Festival.
