If you’re like me — a proud South Shore resident who commutes daily through downtown — you can’t wait for the Hoan Bridge work to be done.
Well, the bad news is it will be a while: The project won’t be complete until late 2015.
The good news: Progress is being made.
I just came across the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Hoan Bridge reconstruction website, so I’d encourage you to check it out for regular updates.
The new news is around the Jackson/Van Buren on- and off-ramp. Arch repainting also continues into the late fall.
And one more note: I think this movable barrier — where they can add a lane depending on the time of day — is really cool. I’ve never seen a piece of machinery like it.
