MADISON, Wis. - If you're one of the thousands of people who drive up and down John Nolan Drive you might have noticed a barge, a tug boat and several crews working in Monona Bay and wondered what they're doing. The answer is replacing two 100 year-old railroad bridges.
Wisconsin and Southern Railroad Company is getting rid of two timber truss railroad bridges on Monona Bay and replacing it with steel. The railroad line serves customers in Madison and Oregon.
“This project will extend the life of both of these bridges for another 100 years so that we can continue moving trains with modern weights and engines,”
Wisconsin Southern has contracted La Crosse-based Brennan Company, a marine engineering company, to get the job done.
The project will last for next three months.
