MILWAUKEE (AP) — The state will make major improvements to the Hoan Bridge and Interstate 794 in Milwaukee.
Gov. Scott Walker said Saturday that cost estimates for the three-year project are less than $300 million. Construction will likely start at the end of 2013.
Initial findings of an in-depth inspection indicate the structural integrity is safe but State Department of Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb said a long-term solution is needed. A full report will be released in June.
Walker said I-794 and the bridge are key transportation links to Milwaukee and several surrounding suburbs.
