You may have to change your route if you’re driving in Sturgeon Bay next week. The Michigan Street Bridge will be closed from 8 AM to 3 PM on Tuesday, May 7th and Wednesday, May 8th. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will be performing routine bridge inspections. WisDOT will also be cleaning the bridge which they do every year when winter ends. Dale Weber is the bridge maintenance inspection program manager for WisDOT, and he says there is nothing for people to worry about when it comes to the health of the bridge.
Drivers are encouraged to use the Maple/Oregon Bridge or the Bayview Bridge during the closure.
