Cleveland Ave. bridge over I-894/US 45 to close for demolition

MILWAUKEE (WITI) —  As part of the Zoo Interchange project, the Cleveland Avenue Bridge over I-894/US 45 will be closed for demolition and reconstruction this weekend.

Motorists should use WIS100, Oklahoma Avenue and 92nd Street to get around the closure. The Dakota Street pedestrian bridge will remain open during this time.

In an effort to minimize the length of impacts, crews will be working into the evening as well as weekends to complete the work.

Demolition will occur over the next two weeks.

Local access to residents and businesses within the closure area will be maintained at all times.

The project will lengthen the bridge, replace sidewalks and include lighting.
