The new bridge over the Milwaukee River is set to be installed Thursday. Contractors will have the area on Veterans Avenue from East Washington Street to Water Street closed to through traffic from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
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.
MOWA will be open during the bridge construction.
