The project to replace two bridges in western Dane County damaged by flooding in August has been completed. US 14 in the Village of Black Earth is open to through traffic. Governor Scott Walker approved in September a $2.8 million emergency contract to reconstruct two bridges damaged by record flooding in late August. Work to replace the bridges over Black Earth Creek on the east and west side of the community began September 14 and was completed last week. See page 6 for full details. Above, traffic flows over the west bridge, by the Shoebox, last Friday. The Black Earth Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting Tuesday.
