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 .
