A $10.4 million, months-long road project just started on a main road through Cross Plains, and despite detours, business owners said they are not seeing a major impact in sales.
Jodi's Bar and Grill is on Main Street in Cross Plains, but instead of seeing the usual cars driving past, their view for the next couple of months will look more bare and rocky than usual.
"You worry every day, but it's a day by day. Once they get down closer to us it might be a little more of a fear right in front of the building, but as far as now we keep our hopes up and wish for the best," said Brenda Newman, manager at Jodi's Bar and Grill.
As crews start an eight-month construction project on Highway 14 that was four years in the making, Newman is hoping to keep customers’ attention with daily specials and homemade pizza, the restaurant's newest addition.
