Roundabout Driving Tips

  • Slow down, Watch for and obey traffic signs
  • Move into the correct lane for the direction you want to travel
  • Look to the left for traffic
  • Enter when it is safe
  • Keep your speed low and stay in your lane within the roundabout (do not change lanes within the roundabout)
  • Exit carefully to your destination. Use your right-turn signal, in front of the splitter island just prior to your exit, to indicate your intention to exit

Hwy 83 Construction

Construction will begin at the bridge over the Glacier Drumlin State Trail. The existing bridge will be removed and replaced with two separate structures. Temporary asphalt will be installed in the early portion of the project in order to allow one lane of traffic in each direction while construction occurs

Traffic will be maintained on WIS 83 during construction, with flagging

WGFD CPR Classes

Out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest is responsible for an estimated 160,000 deaths a year nationally. CPR, or Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, is a life-saving technique that helps increase survival rates for victims of cardiac arrest. It works by maintaining blood flow to the heart and brain until help arrives.
