Drivers will have to plan alternate routes through Sturgeon Bay this week, as the Department of Transportation has announced several bridge closings for cleaning. All closings will be from 7 am to 3 pm, with the Michigan Street Bridge closed Monday, May 7th, the Maple-Oregon Street Bridge on Tuesday, and the Bayview Bridge on May 9th. Mark Kantola, the Northeast Regional Communication Manager for the Wisconsin DOT, says the project is standard yearly maintenance.
With the proximity of the bridges, Kantola doesn’t expect too many issues with traffic. Drivers are reminded to plan their route accordingly.
