Officials discuss fix to collapsed bridge
ALMA, Wis. — Local officials in western Wisconsin will meet with state transportation officials to discuss how to temporarily fix a collapsed bridge.
Buffalo County highway commissioner Bob Platteter says they don’t know what caused Monday night’s collapse that resulted in two car accidents. No one was seriously injured.
Platteter told WQOW-TV last summer’s flooding could have something to do with the failure of the 100-year-old bridge in the Town of Waumandee. He says the highway department is also checking other bridges in the area for stability.
Platteter said the meeting with state transportation officials will take place Wednesday.
