Bridge construction is underway on US 51 over Rocky Run Creek, between Poynette and Portage, in Columbia County. US 51 is closed to through traffic at the bridge and a signed detour follows WIS 22 and WIS 16. Access remains open to local traffic and businesses.
Crews will replace the existing slab span bridge carrying highway traffic over the creek; pave asphalt near the bridge; replace the guardrail; and install pavement markings.
The work operations are weather dependent and subject to change. The project is anticipated to be completed in mid-October.
