Center Street Bridge


As part of the planned reconstruction of Highway 45, which is part of the Zoo Interchange construction project, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation constructed a new pedestrian bridge over I-41/US 45 near Whitman Middle School and Wauwatosa West High School. From mid-January through early Fall 2016 Center Street will be closed and will not be available to motorists or pedestrians. The existing bridge will be demolished and replaced with a new bridge.
