US 51 Bridge over Rocky Run Creek, located between Poynette and Portage in Columbia County
The proposed project will replace the existing slab span bridge carrying US 51 over Rocky Run Creek in Columbia County. It will also replace the guardrail and roadway approaches. It is anticipated that no additional right-of-way acquisition will be required on this project, meaning that the no additional land on the sides of the road will need to be purchased for this project.
Current (this year)
