Washington Blvd. Bridge fully reopens to traffic

Stadium Freeway project more than halfway complete

By - May 23rd, 2016 03:22 pm

On Friday, May 20, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) fully reopened the West Washington Blvd. Bridge over WIS 175, formerly US 41. The bridge had seen lane closures to facilitate concrete overlay of the bridge deck. Additionally, crews recently completed a concrete overlay on the West Lloyd Street Bridge over WIS 175. The lane restrictions on the bridge remain as the City of Milwaukee continues work on Lloyd Street to the east and west of the structure.

Crews will continue working on a deck replacement of the West Vliet Street Bridge over WIS 175 and paving the WIS 175 mainline and adjacent ramps. In June, replacement of the signals at the intersection of West Wisconsin Avenue and North 46th Street is scheduled to take place. Some delays are anticipated due to associated lane closures.

The above work is related to the Stadium Freeway rehabilitation from State Street to Lisbon Avenue. More information about the project can be found at http://projects.511wi.gov/stadfree/
