Department of Transportation to pay $445,000 more for land
About three years after the first offer was made, St. Croix County has gotten another $445,000 for land the Wisconsin Department of Transportation took for Hwy. 64 work.
The DOT first offered $169,000, although it later paid $172,718. During mediation last month, county negotiators agreed to sell the 23 acres for $617,718.
Administrative Coordinator Chuck Whiting said that amounts to about $25,000 an acre, but the land is worth more than that now.
