The Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s $7.4 million Hoan Bridge deck and pier surface repair project is getting under way in Milwaukee County, according to a news release from WisDOT.
The project, awarded to Zenith Tech Inc., Waukesha, on Nov. 12 will include about 41,252 square yards of preparation decks, 22,000 square feet of concrete surface repair, 3,840 cubic yards of concrete masonry deck patching and 3,840 cubic yards of concrete masonry deck patching steel fibers, as well as debris containment and pavement marking. Work will be ongoing from south of the Carferry ramps to north of the Michigan Street ramps, according to Tony Barth, project supervisor from WisDOT.
Two lanes of I-794 will remain open in each direction during peak periods throughout the project. During the first stage of construction, the Carferry on-ramp will be closed for about 60 days, according to WisDOT. The Carferry off-ramp will be closed near the end of the project for about 30 days.
Zenith Tech is scheduled to complete the project by the end of November. The bridge carries about 43,000 vehicles per day.
