WIS 29 bridge improvements scheduled in Marathon County

June 27, 2014

Bridge improvements on the westbound WIS 29 bridges over Porky Creek (Abbotsford) and the Big Eau Pleine River (Marathon City), are scheduled to begin Monday, July 7.

Zenith Tech, Inc. of Waukesha is the prime contractor for the $640,000 project that will extend the service life of the pavement and the bridges. Work includes:

  • Repairing concrete deck overlays
  • Improving the bridge approaches with concrete repairs and overlays
  • Replacing guardrail
  • Installing new signing and pavement markings

WIS 29 will remain open to traffic during construction. Motorists can expect to encounter single lane closures on westbound WIS 29. Construction is scheduled for completion by early September 2014.

The project will be paid for with combinations of federal and state transportation funds.
