On June 3, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin rehabilitating the Silver Spring Drive bridge over the Milwaukee River in the city of Glendale. This project will consist of a bridge deck overlay and minor roadway rehabilitation adjacent to the bridge.
 
To help maximize traffic flow and work zone safety, construction will require multiple stages with temporary closures. Here’s what to expect:
Early June
  • The I-43 northbound loop exit ramp to westbound Silver Spring Drive will be closed until late summer.
    • An official detour will be signed along WIS 190 (Capitol Drive) and WIS 57 (Green Bay Avenue)
    • Motorists more familiar with the area can use the nearby I-43 northbound exit ramp(s) to Port Washington Road to access westbound Silver Spring Drive.
Early July
  • Traffic on Silver Spring Drive will be reduced to a single lane until mid-August.
  • Access from the I-43 southbound exit ramp to westbound Silver Spring Drive will be closed until mid-August.
    • An official detour will be signed along Good Hope Road and Green Bay Avenue
  • The Silver Spring Drive entrance ramp to I-43 southbound will be closed until mid-August.
    • Eastbound Silver Spring Drive to I-43 south detour – Green Bay Avenue and Capitol Drive
    • Westbound Silver Spring Drive to I-43 south detour – Port Washington Road to northbound I-43, then utilize the Good Hope Road Interchange to return to southbound I-43.
This project is part of a region-wide effort this summer to rehabilitate various structures throughout southeastern Wisconsin. The contractor, Zenith Tech. Inc., is planning on completing this project by late summer. The schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change.
