MERRILL, Wis. (WSAW) - The Lincoln County Highway Department spent much of the day Tuesday repairing a section of Highway 107 washed out by flooding.

Monday afternoon a portion of Highway 107 at Lone Pine Drive was closed due to flooding. The area is close to Alexander Lake.

Jason Lemmer from the highway department said that portion of Highway 107 was then closed.

“The water was up to the blacktop. It had washed all the material out from underneath the blacktop, so we had to shut it down last night,” Lemmer explained.

Crews hope to have the repairs complete by Tuesday afternoon.
