Bridge on Milwaukee's south side to close until November 2018
The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works is closing the South 1st Street bridge over the Kinnickinnic River on Monday, July 10 for a rehabilitation project. The bridge will be closed until November 2018.
Traffic on the Kinnickinnic River will be open during the navigational season. Work will be conducted with one leaf of the bridge up and one (1) leaf down. Boaters should proceed with extra caution and be aware of temporary signing or navigational traffic controls during the construction process.
During the non-navigational season (Winter 2017-18) the bridge will be inoperable with both leaves in the down position.
