As you’ll recall, earlier this year Kohl’s Corp. volunteers banded together to repair a crumbling South Milwaukee landmark: Grant Parks’ seven bridges.
But there was one problem: One important bridge was beyond the scope of the repairs. The “lakeside bridge” repairs were simply too big to be addressed by a group of volunteers, no matter how well intentioned.
Well, the Seventh Bridge is getting fixed up, too.
That’s according to Milwaukee County Supervisor Pat Jursik, who sent the following email today …
The contract has been let for repair of the lakeside bridge at Seven Bridges. Stone Creek Builders was awarded the contract, having offered the best bid. Although there is a $41,000 shortfall, it will be made up from other projects that were completed under budget.
It’s good to see progress here, and I thank Pat for her continued work on improving Grant Park — including the ongoing roadwork to repair the main park drive.
I’ll keep you posted on the projects.
