GREEN BAY – Dredging operations, to remove and abate PCB-contaminated sediments from the bottom of the Fox River, have started up for 2017. The semi-dump trucks hauling to the Hickory Hills Landfill near Hilbert resumed this week.
About 200 truckloads per week are expected to go through Greenleafd, Forest Junction and Hilbert. The loads are hauled from Green Bay to the landfill in the Town of Chilton.
The primary route is Ashland Avenue to State 172, then on State 57/32 south to Schneider Road in Calumet County and west to the landfill.
The secondary route follows Ashland Avenue to I-41, south to County U to State 96, through Wrigvhtstown to Greenleaf, then south on State 57/32 to Schneider Road.
The secondary route will be used when the primary route is unavailable or subject to delays that will impact the transportation schedule.
Due to several major construction projects on area state highways, other transportation route options may be necessary as the project proceeds.
The hours of trucking to the Hickory Meadows Landfill are consistent with the landfill’s regulated hours of operation: 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday and some Saturday mornings.
