Highway 26 bypass opens

The Highway 26 bypass around Milton opens Friday morning.  Department of Transportation Project Manager Terry Schopp says she's pleased the project is on budget and opening ahead of schedule.  Last years dry weather helped contractors.  Access to Milton from Highway 26 will now be available via round-a-bouts at Townline Road and Highway 59, as well as a diamond interchange at County Highway N.  Work still needs to be completed where the old 26 meets the new.  That will take several weeks yet.
