New website for Winneconne Bridge (WIS 116) and roadway

June 12, 2014

Winnebago County bridge being built in 2017

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is announcing an updated web site for the proposed reconstruction of Main Street (WIS 116) through the village of Winneconne, including a new downtown bridge over the Wolf River. The website is located at the WisDOT website. The project limits are WIS 116 (Main Street) from just west of 9th Street to just east of 13th Avenue, in Winneconne, Winnebago County.

Construction of the new bridge will begin in 2017 and finish in 2018. Work on the remainder of Main Street will take place during 2018. Construction cost is currently estimated at slightly more than $22 million.

The project overview includes:

  • The existing bridge over the Wolf River in downtown Winneconne will be replaced with a fixed span bridge just south of the existing alignment. Reconstruction of the bridge approaches will extend roughly to 2nd Street on the west and 2nd Avenue on the east.
  • New fishing piers will be constructed roughly in the same location as the existing roadway bridge extending from both shores with a gap over the main navigation channel.
  • The remainder of Main Street within the village of Winneconne (2nd Street to 9th Street on the west and 2nd Avenue to 13th Avenue on the east) will be reconstructed as part of a separate project. New storm sewer is included and utilities under the existing roadway will be replaced.
