it think the marshall wig-wag and the avocoa wigwag might still be there because according to dan's wigwag site they are. so does google street view show that they are

Street view's from 2013 (about 5 years old, now), though satellite view is most likely newer and appears to show that it might still be standing:

There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

The only wig-wags remaining in Wisconsin were the ones at Saemann Avenue in Sheboygan. The state ordered they be removed by June 30th of this year. I haven't been back up that way in a while so I have no idea if they're gone yet or not. Once they're pulled out, if they haven't been already, Wisconsin will no longer have any wig-wags left in service.

As of a week ago, the Sheboygan 'wags still stood (not my shot, I wish it was).

Great news! Now let's hope it stays there as well.

And here's a video of them that Brenton81 uploaded of them today (not entirely sure when it was taken though):
