The Village of Ephraim is preparing to repair all 61 manholes on Highway 42 from Water Street next summer. The Ephraim Board of Trustees meets this week to discuss borrowing $150,000 for the project. Public Works Supervisor Russell Salfi says the majority of the manholes need repair or replacement.
Salfi says the manhole repairs are needed ahead of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s planned resurfacing of Highway 42 in 2019.
