Public meeting set for Oct. 12
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has proposed replacing the U.S. Highway 10 eastbound bridge over County Trunk E, in the town of Waupaca.
DOT will hold a public meeting to discuss the bridge at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Waupaca Area Public Library, 107 S. Main St.
A brief presentation will begin at 5 p.m. The rest of the meeting will follow an open house format.
A construction project is currently scheduled to occur in 2020, but could occur as early as 2019.
County E will be closed under U.S. 10 for approximately six months during construction.
The U.S. 10 bridge over County E was constructed in 1965. Maintenance projects were completed in 1990 and 2014.
According to the DOT, the bridge deck has extensive cracking throughout the surface and is nearing the end of its useful life.
The Waupaca library is wheelchair accessible. Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing, and require an interpreter during the meeting, may request one by contacting Kristin McHugh at least three working days prior to the Oct. 12 via the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System (711).
