US 41/45 Menomonee River Bridges - Fast facts
Falls, Washington County
|View SE, US 41/45 Menomonee River Bridges in a larger map.|
US 41/45, Menomonee River Bridge, 0.5 miles southeast of US 41/55/WIS 167, in Washington County.
As part of emergency pavement repair, two US 41 southbound lanes will be closed between County Q and WIS 167 from 3 pm to 10 pm on Thursday, January 15. A single lane will remain open at all times.
- Remove the existing roadway and bridges
- Reconstruct the roadway and bridges along with all incidental items, including retaining walls, concrete barrier, and high tension cable guard
- Replace all other incidental roadway items, including beam guard, storm sewer, erosion control, traffic control, pavement marking, permanent signing, and landscaping restoration
The current bridges were constructed in the early 1950s and have reached the end of their service lives. The bridge substructures are deteriorating and need to be replaced entirely. The current structures will soon no longer be able to safely handle the continual loading from the traffic volumes. Full bridge replacement will allow current and future traffic volumes to continue to safely cross over the river.
- August 2014 through mid June 2015
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.
