I-794 Freeway and Daniel Hoan Bridge, in southeast
Wisconsin’s transportation network, connects downtown Milwaukee and
across the Milwaukee River inlet.
Hoan Bridge and I-794 are responsible for hundreds of millions
of dollars of south shore community development, including Milwaukee’s
South Side/Bay View, St. Francis, Cudahy, South Milwaukee and Oak
An in-depth inspection was initiated in 2010 to determine future
needs of the Hoan Bridge.
Findings indicate that the structural integrity remains intact
and the bridge is safe. Although continued maintenance projects have kept the bridge
functional, a long-term solution is needed to keep this key route open
The state is moving forward on a project to make major improvements
to Daniel Hoan Bridge and I-794 Freeway.
