Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

MOUNT PLEASANT, WI – If you plan to travel along Highway K between Highway V and Highway H from Monday through Aug. 30, you’ll need to plan for a different route.

The Canadian Pacific Railroad intends to close that section so that they can make improvements to the railroad grade crossing and repair a rail defect, according to a press release by Racine County.

“County K will be fully closed at the railroad crossing, about 150 feet west of County H, and will be closed to all through-traffic between County Highway V and County Highway H. The closure is scheduled to continue through Friday, August 30,” the press release reads.

Motorists are asked to use County Trunk Highway C and County Trunk Highway H.

Signs will be posted to direct traffic around the closure. The work is weather dependent and subject to change.
