DOT Says 24-7 Flashing Lights On Bayview Bridge Permanent

 

Aside from the new driving surface and the fresh coat of blue paint on the steel grid deck, drivers crossing the recently-rehabbed Bayview Bridge may notice something else different. The flashing yellow lights on the "Draw Bridge" sign now flash constantly. Prior to the work, the lights flashed only when the bridge was being opened or closed. Kim Rudat with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the change is permanent and was put in place as a safety measure to let motorists know that signals are ahead.

The changes are part of a $4.8 million project to extend the life of the bridge.

The bridge reopened to vehicular traffic on Friday and is expected to open to pedestrians July 28.
