By - Jan 24th, 2022 04:15 am

To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Governor Evers signed a $6.4 million contract to replace the 60th Street bridge over I-894 in the city of Greenfield. The existing bridge was constructed in 1966. Various improvements have taken place over the years, including a concrete deck overlay in 1989.

Work is tentatively scheduled to begin February 3, weather permitting. Lunda Construction is the prime contractor for the project and will implement the following:

Project Improvements

Bridge replacement

New pavement at the ramp intersections

New traffic signals at the ramp intersections

I-894 shoulder reconstruction near the bridge

What to Expect

Full closure of 60th Street at the bridge

60th Street entrance ramps to I-894 will be closed throughout construction

I-894 exit ramps to 60th Street remain open for right-turns only

A 28-day closure of the exit ramps is needed to complete roadway work at both intersections

Occasional nighttime lane closures and nighttime full freeway closures of I-894 to facilitate bridge work

Various detour routes will be marked utilizing nearby interchange ramps and adjacent roadways

Construction is scheduled for completion by late fall 2022. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction progress.
