Diggers Hotline News | February 18, 2014

Good Friday is April 18

Plan ahead: April 18, 2014 will not count as a working day

The next legal holiday that affects start dates is Good Friday, April 18, 2014. As a result, Friday, April 18 will not count towards the three working days needed between contacting Diggers Hotline and starting your excavation.

After Presidents' Day, the next legal holiday that affects start dates is Memorial Day, May 26, 2014.

Diggers Hotline is bound by state statute to recognize the legal holidays in Wisconsin. It is not our decision which holidays to recognize or when to recognize them. For a list of legal holidays in Wisconsin, click here.

Diggers Hotline is Wisconsin's one-call center. Anyone in the state who is digging, excavating or disturbing the soil is required by law to contact Diggers Hotline at least three working days before beginning work.
