Work on Cleveland Avenue bridge over I-894/US 45 begins next week

June 14, 2013

As part of the Zoo Interchange project, the Cleveland Avenue Bridge over I-894/US 45 will be closed for demolition and reconstruction beginning the week of June 17, 2013.

Motorists should use WIS 100, Oklahoma Avenue and 92nd Street to get around the closure. The Dakota Street pedestrian bridge will remain open during this time.

In an effort to minimize the length of impacts, crews will be working into the evening as well as weekends to complete the work. Demolition will occur over the next two weeks.

Local access to residents and businesses within the closure area will be maintained at all times.

The project will lengthen the bridge, replace sidewalks and include lighting.

The contractor, Lunda, will finish the $2.5 million project in November 2013.
