Release Date: April 7, 2020

NOTE: This project has been rescheduled and the schedule/traffic impacts modified. Please see Maple/Oregon Street Bridge project website for updated information.

(Sturgeon Bay) bridge repairs on the Maple-Oregon Street Bridge in the city of Sturgeon Bay begin Monday, April 13, 2020. Work is scheduled to finish by mid-June 2020. The roadway will be closed for the first stage of construction beginning late Sunday, April 12, and will reopen by Friday, April 24. Two additional stages will occur in early May and early-mid June, weather dependent. The roadway will also be closed during these times. 

Lunda Construction Company from Black River Falls, Wis., is the prime contractor.

Project improvements

This project will be constructed in two phases during the months of April, May and June in 2020. There will be a short gap between phases.

  • Phase 1: Constructed beginning on April 13, 2020
  • Phase 2: Constructed in early May to June 2020
    • There will be a short break in construction between the phases

Phase 1 will involve concrete work to the bridge deck to repair concrete that is in poor shape. This will reinforce the concrete to begin Phase 2, which will involve applying a polymer overlay to the bridge deck to extend the life of the concrete.

Traffic impacts

  • The Oregon/Maple Bridge will be CLOSED for approximately 5 weeks TOTAL during construction. The closure will be split between Phases 1 and 2. 
  • The Bridge will be reopened to traffic between the Phases when construction is not taking place.
  • Opening of the bridge bascule span for watercraft passage will be restricted at times.

Project benefits

This project will extend the life of the bridge by repairing poor concrete and sealing the deck with a polymer overlay.
