DoT Denies Request for ATV Traffic on Hwy 86, Tomahawk Looking at Options
Published on 04/25/2018 under News The City of Tomahawk hit a roadblock in their efforts to open Highway 86 to ATV traffic. Over the winter, the Board of Public Works was approached by ATV enthusiasts about opening access on 86 to both the south and east of town. Being a state highway, the simple solution was to request access to the state Department of Transportation, as the city did earlier this year. The state recently responded with a letter rejecting that request, offering a number of safety concerns including the bridge south of town. Also included in the rejection letter, were some options for the city to assume responsibility and get the segment open on their own(with county approval neccessary.) The next step is consulting with the city attorney and insurance carrier to seek their opinion on liability issues. The board voted to do that last evening. The city is actually dividing the route into two segments, as the 86 bridge south of town appears to be the area of greatest safety concern. As a result, they'll seek separate opinions from just North of the bridge, through town and to the east. The other segment would begin at the bridge going south.

Tomahawk Hosting Public Informational Meetings Wednesday on Summer Construction Projects
Published on 04/25/2018 under News Road construction season is now underway, and the City of Tomahawk has two major projects lined up for the summer. Coming up this evening, they will be holding a pair of public informational meetings for residents to learn more about the projects and the timeline. Those two sections are Kings Road in the approach to King's Hill and storm water work on South Tomahawk Avenue. While there is some distance between the two projects, the work was bid as one contract in hopes of saving set up costs. That $500,000 contract was awarded to Merrill Gravel and Construction at the Council meeting earlier this month. The King's Road segment is scheduled to be completed by the 4th holiday, with the South Tomahawk Avenue section to be done after the holiday. Like the work, tonight's informational meeting will be broken up into two sections. The King's Road conversation will be at 5pm, followed by South Tomahawk at 6pm. City officials and the project engineer will be on hand to lead the conversation.
