Crews to begin replacement of WIS 67 bridge over the Bark River

 

May 18, 2018

On May 29, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin reconstructing the WIS 67 (Summit Avenue) bridge over the Bark River in Waukesha County. The new bridge profile will be raised and widened to meet current design standards and to accommodate operational improvements. Since June of 2017, the existing bridge has had a reduced weight limit posted for vehicles over 40,000 pounds.


Scope of Work

Full bridge replacement
Adjustments to approach roadways to match new bridge profile
Safety and mobility improvements to the WIS 67 and Whitaker Lane intersection

Impacts

A full closure of the roadway is necessary to construct the bridge. The official detour will be signed along US 18, WIS 83 and I-94. Local access will be maintained to properties near the project.
Recreational use of the Bark River will be restricted at the bridge.

The contractor, Lunda Construction Co., is planning on completing the $1.8 million project by mid-fall. The schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change.
