Bayview Bridge improvements finished on time
(Green Bay) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) NE region office in Green Bay is announcing the Bayview Bridge (WIS 42/57) in Sturgeon Bay, Door County will open to vehicular traffic Friday, June 28 at 6 a.m. The sidewalk on the Bayview Bridge will remained closed until the July 28, 2013 for finishing work.
When the bridge opens, WisDOT will restore the traffic signal at Michigan St. and WIS 42/57 from its current red-flashing mode. The department will also turn off the temporary signal at Egg Harbor Road and WIS 42/57 and place a bag over the lights until the temporary lights can be taken down.
The Bayview Bridge closure was part of a $4.8 million project to upgrade the bridge. It finished on time and on budget. The project included structural steel repair, bridge painting, electrical and machinery system upgrades, and an overlay of the bridge deck and approaches. This work was done to extend the life of the bridge.
The Bayview Bridge was opened in 1978. The last major bridge repairs were done in 2004.
