With the PWF Road reconstruction project still underway, the Jefferson County Commissioners are asking people to take an alternate route to access the Fairbury Cemetery.
Commissioner Gale Pohlmann stated that people have been driving on the PWF to get to the cemetery, or parking across the street and walking across the PWF. Neither option, he explained, is safe due to the state of the road during the construction project.
Instead, Pohlmann urges people to access the Fairbury Cemetery by driving east on Highway 8 and turning northeast onto 569 Avenue, which has been marked with signs by the Jefferson County Highway Department.
This notice is especially important because of the expected increase in traffic over Memorial Day Weekend, Pohlmann explained.
