The reason for this unusual counsel is that the Rural interstate system was completed two years ago and As a result the primary roads received the Lions share of the 1970 construction budget. Park roads Scenic highways and Wayside Are in unusually Fine condition the division said. In the annual reports on summer Highway conditions District Highway engineers across the state recommended As vacation routes a number of highways which were motoring nightmares before completion of the interstate. . 12, for example is the route recommended by l. G. Schneider District Engineer at la Crosse As a vacation alternate to 1-94 in the Tomah Black River Falls area. Schneider said considerable development has been done in the Black River state Forest and a route marked the Waznee Trail leads through Forest lands abundant with wildlife and nearly untouched wilderness scenery. From Hatfield along the Waznee Trail Schneider recommends a return trip to Black River Falls via Millston.
