Kewaunee County motorists are getting a sneak preview of what traffic could be like when Farm Technology Days kicks off July 11. The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department is asking drivers to avoid County Highway K near host farm Ebert Enterprises in Algoma while the construction of tent city featuring 600 exhibitors and other activities takes place. Wisconsin State Patrol Sgt. Dan Diedrich says once the event starts next month, motorists are going to want to use mobile devices to find an alternate route to the three-day show. Since the location has limited access, especially from the east, Diedrich suggests you stick to the signs.
The Wisconsin State Patrol, Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department, and other agencies have been coordinating for the last three years on traffic and safety plans for Farm Technology Days, which is expected to draw over 40,000 people.
