Bridge Road bridge to close to vehicle traffic Thursday for road work

MONONA, Wis. — The Bridge Road bridge over the Yahara River will be closed Thursday.

Crews will complete a polymer bridge deck overlay. The work is expected to take between six and ten hours.

Cyclists and pedestrians will still be able to cross the bridge, as the work only affects the roadway and not the sidewalks.

Drivers who usually use the bridge should detour using Falcon Circle and Ford Street. If the work can’t be done Thursday due to weather, it will be done Friday.
