Water Street Bridge to Re-open on Friday
City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works announced that the Water Street bascule bridge will re-open to through traffic on Friday by 5:00 p.m.
The bridge had been closed since November 7 for installation of a new center lock system.
According to DPW, it provides a tighter fit between the two bridge halves and the added benefit of the new system less noise as vehicles travel over the upgraded bridge.
DPW thanks the traveling public for your patience during this project.
