Watertown Plank Road - Underwood Creek Bridges Rehabilitation

The existing bridge decks will be removed and replaced while updating the existing girders. The new bridge decks will be widened to provide additional accommodation for bicyclists. Work will continue until Fall 2018.

Work will be done in stages to ensure that single lane traffic will still be available in each direction for the duration of the project. At times during the project, the Oak Leaf Trail crossing will need to be closed. Closure dates and detours will be posted as they are available.

An open house public meeting with be held at the City of Wauwatosa Public Works Building located at 11100 W. Walnut Road, Wauwatosa, WI on June 28th from 5-7 p.m. to discuss plans, detours and the proposed timeline of the project.
