Work on Menomonee River Bridge begins tonight

Aug. 18, 2014

Germantown — On the evening of Monday, Aug. 18, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin a $4 million reconstruction project of less than a mile of Highway 41/45 at the Menomonee River Bridge, immediately west of Maple Road.

The project includes removing the existing northbound and southbound roadway and bridges; reconstructing the roadway and bridges, retaining walls, concrete barrier and high tension cable guard; replacing beam guards, storm sewer and permanent signing and restoring landscaping.

The project will be completed in four stages to allow for three lanes of traffic in each direction of the freeway during daily peak hours of travel. Although there may be temporary lane closures in the area during off-peak hours, the freeway will remain open to traffic at all times and no detour route will be necessary.

The contractor, Edward Kraemer and Sons, plans on completing the project by June 2015.
