Crews clean the tops of girders over the Hoan Bridge

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Work is progressing on Milwaukee's Hoan Bridge project. On Tuesday, February 11th, crews spent part of the day cleaning the tops of girders on the bridge.

The current work involves removing the existing bridge deck. That deck removal work is scheduled to take place for the next several months over the festival grounds.

Crews are working double shifts in an effort to complete the work prior to the festival season.
