Temporary fix reopens trail
The Tri-County Corridor between County Highway UU in the town of Parkland and Kellogg Road in the town of Amnicon reopens today.
The trail that connects three northernmost counties in Wisconsin — Ashland, Bayfield and Douglas — was closed earlier this week after culverts in the area washed out.
“Due to the fact that we cannot find a route to get people who use the corridor around the area … we will be filling the hole with dirt and packing it,” said Tom Thornton, executive director of the Tri-County Recreational Trail Corridor Commission.
The fix is temporary and the commission still plans to replace the culverts lost. Dates have not been set for the permanent repairs.
