Project location

I-39/I-90 bridge over WIS 30 eastbound & US 51 northbound bridge over Taylor St. & WSOR railroad, Dane County

Project overview

WisDOT plans to make repairs to two bridges. The first carries I-39 northbound /I-90 westbound over WIS 30 eastbound. On this bridge, currently the southeast wingwall is broken and tipping and will need to be repaired or replaced. A wingwall holds the ground leading up to the bridge in place.

The other bridge carries US 51 northbound over Taylor St. and the WSOR railroad. The northeast wingwall is broken and tipping and will need to be repaired or replaced. The two broken wingwalls will be repaired and shoulder pavement at each wingwall will be replaced. A short section of guard rail will need to be removed and reinstalled where it attaches to each repaired wingwall.


  • Summer 2019 - Construction anticipated

Traffic impacts/detours

  • One lane will be closed for repairs on US 51 northbound bridge.
  • Traffic lanes will be shifted for repairs on I-39 bridge. All lanes will remain open.
