Good news for students, dog walkers, bikers and runners: The Beech Street foot bridge over Oak Creek was put in place on Monday.
According to Milwaukee County, “Work is progressing on the approaches today (Tuesday, Dec. 22). The bridge is usable but still hard to get to without the approaches. … The bridge should be safely usable by Thursday.”
Paving the approaches and turf restoration will not occur until the spring.
Thanks to the Parks Department for their work in getting this done before Christmas, and to County Supervisor Pat Jursik for leading the charge to get this built as quickly as it is.
This bridge will stand the test of time, and it’s great to see the county’s continued investment in our parks and parkways.
