Bridge replacement

Contractors remove a pedestrian bridge on the Fort McCoy cantonment area in late September. Replacement bridges will be constructed out of low-maintenance weathering steel, capable of supporting snow-removal equipment, and compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The new bridges also will support the Directorate of Public Works Master Plan to safely aid in pedestrian troop movements from transient troop housing areas to business areas at Fort McCoy. Project completion is expected to be the end of October.
