The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northwest Region is conducting a Construction Information Meeting regarding the construction of the Red Cedar River Bridge on South Main Street in Rice Lake, Barron County. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 4, 2018 from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Rice Lake City Hall, 30 E Eau Claire St, WI 54868. The meeting will follow an open house format with a brief presentation beginning at 5:15 p.m.
