Rustic Roads photo contest begins

Amateur photographers throughout Wisconsin are invited to grab their cameras and head out to some of the state’s most scenic back-roads and start snapping away.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Rustic Roads Program, one of the state’s most successful and longest-lasting state/local partnership programs, with a photo contest.

Photos must be taken between June 16 and Dec. 31, 2014, and submissions will be accepted through Jan. 15, 2015. The Rustic Roads Board will select winning photos in six categories and will be looking for photos that best highlight the natural qualities, features and vistas commonly found on Wisconsin’s officially-designated Rustic Roads.

“Since the first Rustic Road was designated in Taylor County in 1975, the Rustic Roads Program has helped identify and preserve some of Wisconsin’s most scenic country roadways, while enhancing the state and local tourism economies,” noted DOT Scenic Byways and Rustic Roads Coordinator Jane Carrola in a press release announcing the contest. “The photo contest will help capture the spirit of this extremely successful and popular partnership.”

Currently, there are 115 Rustic Roads spanning some 665 miles through 59 counties, including County S between State 23 and the village of Glenbeulah in Sheboygan County. To qualify as a Rustic Road, a route must have outstanding natural features such as rugged terrain, native vegetation, abundant wildlife, open areas or agricultural vistas. Rustic roads range from under two miles long to 37 miles in length and have speed limits of no more than 45 miles per hour.

Complete contest information, rules and submission guidelines can be found at the DOT website: contest.htm.

County LS still closed

County LS continues to be closed from County FF in the town of Mosel to County XX in the village of Cleveland. This is due to the relocation of County LS, part of the County LS and Dairyland Drive construction project.

The detour is County FF to State 42 north to County XX in Manitowoc County.

The 18-mile project on County LS from Eisner Avenue to County XX in the village of Cleveland and Dairyland Drive from State 42 to County XX in the village of Cleveland includes Pigeon River Bridge improvement on County LS and the Dairyland Drive bridge in Manitowoc County; relocation of County LS in the town of Mosel; milling, pulverizing, blacktopping; and minor intersection work at County LS and Playbird Road and County LS and Willow Creek.

Motorists are advised to use caution and remain alert when driving through any work zone.
