Wis. 69 near tracks will be closed for one week

MONROE - Wisconsin 69 near the railroad tracks in Monroe will be closed for about a week starting Monday so crossing barriers can be removed and concrete by the tracks can be fixed, Monroe Police Chief Fred Kelley said. Kelley said there were plans to fix the area near the railroad tracks on Wis. 69 for a while now, and the Department of Transportation can "kill a couple birds with two stones," by taking out the old barriers along the tracks as well. "They said the concrete by the tracks was buckling, and I guess a lot of traffic goes over that and trains, too," Kelley said.
