Long Description:
Set on the adjacent wing wall from another disk, this was set as a control station by the Wisconsin DOT in 2004. This one is on the top of the Southeast wing wall. Best way to get to it is by parking on the South side of US 61 on the West end of the guard rail and walking on the shoulder of the bridge to the SE wing wall. Watch out for cars as this is the main road between Viroqua and Readstown. This disk is in fantastic shape and is very readable. There is also a white WP next to the disk.
