Notice of Closure
Structure#: C-13-158 (Hillside Road just south of County Road A)
Due to overall poor condition and structural deterioration WIS DOT conducted an inspection and performed a load rating calculation for bridge C-13-158.
The weight limit calculated and tight quarters around the structure are not sufficient for the Town of Albion to keep the hill to the south of the structure and the structure itself in safe winter driving condition. Therefore, the bridge will be closed from December 7, 2020 until replacement is complete.
We are currently working with MSA Professional Services, Inc., on the preliminary site work to get it sized appropriately and prepare the bid documents so we can get this completed as soon as possible.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
