Jan. 24, 2017 – West Bend, WI – West Bend City Engineer Max Marechal outlines the process as the city follows up on what it will take to remove the ‘bridge to nowhere’ over the Milwaukee River.

The removal of the bridge is limited to the overhead structure over the Milwaukee River. The cooridor between existing buildings from Main Street to the west bank of the river will remain in place as well as the stairs, as they are required to  provide emergency egress for the theatre building.

The following schedule reflects the expectation that the DRN give a determination we wouldn’t need a permit from them and that we would move forward with other required efforts immediately to put plans and contract documents together:

Obtain permission to bid – Feb. 20, 2017

Obtain DNR determination on permitting – Feb. 27, 2017

First advertisement for bids – March 3, 2017

Second advertisement for bids – March 10, 2017

Bid opening – March 21, 2017

Award of contract – April 3, 2017

Construction start – May 1, 2017

Estimate for work is expected to be around $100,000.
