Check out the front-row seats inside the Museum of Wisconsin Art today as it offers a prime view of the installation of the new bridge. The prefabricated bow truss pedestrian bridge will be delivered between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursday.
MOWA opens at 10 a.m. and will offer a prime seat to watch the bridge work. Coffee and a sunny seat will make it feel much like a luxury box at Miller Park.
Staff at MOWA came up with the idea after they found themselves glued to the window during the dismantling of the old Ziegler bridge. (VIDEO: Hard to look away)
The bow truss pedestrian bridge will be delivered and then ‘dropped’ into place.
The bridge will have a concrete deck with prefabricated steel trusses that will be painted white.
The new pedestrian bridge extends from Service Drive over the Milwaukee River with direct access to Veterans Avenue and the Museum of Wisconsin Art.
