Governor Walker approves US 141 improvements in Wausaukee, Marinette County

June 17, 2014

Work starting Monday, June 23

As part of his efforts to create jobs and make sure Wisconsin is open for business, Governor Scott Walker recently approved $1.2 million to replace the US 141 bridge over the Wausaukee River. Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, June 23 (weather-dependent) and be completed in September. Northbound US 141 traffic will be maintained on the US 141 corridor. Southbound traffic will be detoured through the village of Wausaukee. The project is expected to be completed by late October.

Zenith Tech, Inc., Waukesha, WI is the prime contractor.

The bridge is nearly 90 years old, at the end of its service life and must be replaced. Work also includes upgrading the approaches and sanitary sewer work.

The US 141 southbound local detour is Division Street/Tyler Street and 1st Street.
