Welcome to Rusk County


Take a hike in the Blue Hills: you'll enjoy the Perch Lake Nature Trail, the Ice-Age Trail or the hardwood trails. A forested, glaciated area, waterfalls are hidden in the woods, and deer inhabit the area. Take a boat ride on any of our clean, clear lakes. Get the fishing tackle out: bass, panfish, walleye, musky, northern, or bullheads are waiting to bite. Good trout fishing is to be had in well-stocked streams. Picnic at Memorial Park or Falge Park in Ladysmith, or enjoy the county and city parks at Bruce, Hawkins, Sheldon, Perch Lake, Audie Lake or Josie Creek. Swimming, boat ramps, barbecue grills, tennis, volleyball, horseshoe, golf and baseball games are available. Whitewater canoeing is a great sport on the Flambeau River, while the Chippewa provides a quieter ride with beautiful scenery - again, the Rusk County fishing is great! Hundreds of miles of snowmobile and cross country ski trails criss-cross the county, and an excellent ski hill offers the highest vertical run in the north.

Rusk County Highway Seasonal Weight Limits

SPRING LOAD RESTRICTIONS

Pursuant to Wisconsin Statutes 349.16, Rusk County highway season weight restrictions will become effective Friday, March 28, 2014 at 12:01 a.m. Adjustment to the proposed effective date may be considered contingent upon weather conditions.

The Rusk County Highway weight restrictions for 2014 shall be set at 4 Tons per Axle – 20 Ton Gross. This applies to all County Trunk Highways in Rusk County except for:

• CTH “I” from Highway 8 south and west to Highway 27.

This is a critical period of time for the county highways and we request support and cooperation for this temporary load limit. The Rusk County Highway Department will be enforcing the posted seasonal weight limits and penalties may be imposed under sec. 348.21, Wis. Statutes for violations.

This notice does not include town roads. Townships will need to be contacted directly for the status of their seasonal weight restrictions.

Affordable Health Care Information

The Affordable Care Act puts consumers back in charge of their health care. Under the law, a new “Patient’s Bill of Rights” gives the American people the stability and flexibility they need to make informed choices about their health.

With a “no wrong door” approach, an individual or family can determine what type of insurance they can receive: •BadgerCare+ •Private plans with tax credits •Catastrophic plans

The Marketplace is a place people can go to compare insurance plans and determine what additional services beyond the essential health benefits they may want or need.
