Urban sprawl strikes again! – Old Cars Weekly


Marking the location of Reedsburg Salvage for 56 years, this “Jake’s Junkyard” sign will be a collector’s item after the yard closes.

Marking the location of Reedsburg Salvage for 56 years, this “Jake’s Junkyard” sign will be a collector’s item after the yard closes.

Add Reedsburg Salvage to the lengthy list of yards that have fallen victim to urban sprawl.

The 10-acre property comprising the salvage yard and scrap metal business, located on Main Street (Highway 33) in Reedsburg, Wis., has been sold, according to its current owners. Once the yard’s inventory has been cleared out this summer, the property will be divided in half. The south parcel will become a bypass road to divert semi-trucks from traveling on Main Street. The north parcel will have a franchise gas station/convenience store built on it.
