Beginning, September 25, 2017, DRAX, Inc. of Madison, WI along with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation will begin rehabilitation of the South 8th Street Bridge over the Sheboygan River. A majority of the work under this project is modifications and repairs to the hydraulic system of the bridge. Additionally, bridge painting, concrete pavement repairs, and concrete sidewalk replacement are also included. Work is expected to be completed in late April of 2018.
Single lane closures will begin September 25 and are estimated to be in place through December. In late October, South 8th Street will be closed to all traffic between Indiana Avenue and Riverfront Drive for up to 14 days. Pedestrian access will be maintained over the bridge during this time. Additional information will be provided prior to closing the road to all traffic.
