SOUTH 35TH STREET BRIDGE OVER THE KINNICKINNIC RIVER REHABILITATION PROJECT

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE-JUNE 2019

The South 35th Street Bridge over the Kinnickinnic River rehabilitation project will begin Stage 3 of construction. We anticipate closing the west side of the bridge starting Tuesday, July 2nd for rehabilitation work. Motorists will travel on the newly constructed east side of the street, with one lane of traffic moving in each direction.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

To minimize how construction will impact residents, businesses, and the traveling public, the project will have four major stages:

Stage 1: The east side of the bridge will be closed for construction. Motorists will travel on the west side of the street, with one lane of traffic moving in each direction. Pedestrian access shall be maintained on the west side of bridge. 

Stage 2: The entire bridge will be closed, for approximately seven calendar days, to allow for the pouring and curing of the concrete deck on the east side. Pedestrian access is maintained from Stage 1. 

Stage 3: The west of the bridge will be closed for construction. Motorists will travel on the east side of the street, with one lane of traffic moving in each direction. Pedestrian access shall be maintained on the east side of the bridge. 

Stage 4: The entire bridge will be closed, for approximately seven calendar days, to allow for the pouring and curing of the concrete deck on the west side. Pedestrian access is maintained from Stage 3. 

Bus Route #35: Detours and possible delays during both 7-day closures of the bridge for stages 2 and 4, though all regular stops will continue to be serviced. Stages 1 and 3 will maintain regular route and schedule. 

Parking: On-street parking will not be allowed during construction. 

Construction Hours: Work is allowed from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
