Hwy 35 near old Dairyland power plant to close for short time Thursday

GENOA, Wis. (WKBT) – Highway 35 near Dairyland’s Genoa site will be closed down Thursday.

Crews are expected to close the road at some point between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Parts of the Mississippi River near the sire will also be closed to traffic.

The closure is because of the demolition of Dairyland’s Genoa Station #3, an old coal-fired power plant. The plant shut down in 2021.

The exact time of the closure will depend on weather and other possible scheduling conflicts.

When the road does close, it’s only expected to last about 15 minutes.
