Capitol Drive Bridge repair in Pewaukee to begin
Lane closure on Capitol Drive later this month

 

May 3, 2016

On Thursday, May 5, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to begin a project to repair the WIS 190 (Capitol Drive) westbound bridge over County F (Redford Blvd.). This project will repair several girders damaged during a traffic incident last February. The contractor, Zenith Tech Inc., is planning on completing this work later this spring.
 
To facilitate this work, lane closures will need to take place (Please note the schedule is subject to change).
  • County F northbound will be down to one lane. (Begins May 5)
  • County F entrance ramp to Capitol Drive westbound will be closed. (Begins mid-to-late May)
  • Capitol Drive westbound will be down to one lane. (Begins mid-to-late May)
     
Below is the detour for the entrance ramp closure. 
 
South of WIS 190: Heading northbound on County F, turn west on County M to WIS 164. Take WIS 164 north to connect with westbound WIS 190. 
North of WIS 190: Heading southbound on County F, turn west on County K to WIS 164. Take WIS 164 south to connect with westbound WIS 190.
 
The westbound bridge damage occurred when a truck hauling heavy equipment struck the bottom of the structure last February. The freight company’s insurance will be covering the cost of this $102,000 repair project.
 
This repair work is an interim project until the bridge is fully reconstructed, currently scheduled for 2017.
