March 9, 2016
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will
be conducting repair work to a section of the Locust St.
Bridge over I-43. The work will begin on Wednesday
morning at 8:00 a.m. and will require the left eastbound
lane on the Locust Street Bridge to be closed until such
time that the repairs are complete.
Milwaukee County bridge crews will repair a segment of
the roadway surface that is roughly 8 feet wide by 16
feet long. The repairs and cure time for the concrete is
expected to last until the afternoon of Monday March
14th. Weather conditions will have an impact of the
length of time needed for the concrete to cure.
There will remain one lane of traffic open to eastbound
traffic over the bridge with both westbound lanes
remaining open. There are not expected to be any impacts
to I-43 or the ramps at Locust Street.
Motorists are advised to plan ahead and stay alert in
the work zone. Use 511wi.gov for up to date information
