A portion of U.S. Highway 2 in Ashland County was closed because of extreme weather conditions on Saturday the Ashland County Highway Department reported. The highway was declared impassable at 2:51 p.m. from Ashland to the state Highway 13 turnoff to Bayfield. As travelers to Bayfield know the wind can just howl across HWY 2 near the end of Chequamegon Bay. Years ago ice was piled so high from the bay on the highway it had to be removed with a snowplow when the wind broke it up.
