DOT seeks input on Dunn bridge replacements

DOT seeks input on Dunn bridge replacements

  • 1

Residents are invited to weigh in — at a distance — on the Wisconsin DOT’s plans to replace bridges on Hwy. 79.

The DOT plans to replace bridges on Coon and Clack creeks — both built in 1936.

The bridges are comprised of steel girders and concrete decks supported by timber-pile piers and abutments. According to the DOT, the structures have deteriorated and are at the end of their service lives.

The project would:

  • Remove and replace each structure.
  • Replace roadway approach pavement to raise the profile of the road.
  • Replace guardrail, signage and road markings.

Because of COVID-19 concerns, the DOT is moving public sessions about the projects online.

The public is invited to go to the project website, review a presentation and handout and submit comments by email or mail to project staff.

You can find the information at the DOT site listed under Wis 79 in Dunn County .

You may provide comments by Aug. 12 by contacting:
