Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk announced Monday that work is wrapping up on a pair of bridge replacement projects entirely financed by federal stimulus money.
The county secured about $1.6 million in stimulus dollars for the work on County Highway N over the Yahara River in the town of Dunkirk and County Highway B over Koshkonong Creek in the Village of Rockdale.
The new bridge on Highway N just south of Stoughton cost about $600,000 and was recently opened to traffic. Work on the project started in August and was done by Janesville-based Concrete Structures Inc.
There is still some finishing work being done to the new bridge site on Highway B in Rockdale but the road is open to traffic. That project, performed by Plain-based Edward Kraemer and Sons Inc., also includes a separate path on the bridge for snowmobiles, bikes, joggers and walkers.
