Gov. Tony Evers has signed a $487,618 contract to improve bridge decks on various state highways and interstate highways in the counties of Brown, Calumet, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Outagamie, Sheboygan and Winnebago.
The projects started Wednesday and are expected to wrap up in early August.
Norcon Corp. of Schofield is the prime contractor.
The work consists of resealing existing concrete bridge decks on various highways in each county. The application of the deck sealant will help extend the life of the concrete and steel in the bridge deck by protecting it from de-icing chemicals such as chlorides and decrease future maintenance costs. All the work is weather dependent.
