The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (Wis-DOT) is hosting a public involvement meeting next week to discuss the remote operations of the three lift bridges that cross the ship canal in Sturgeon Bay. The bridges are currently operating under a United States Coast Guard interim rule this year. DOT Regional Bridge Engineer Jason Lahm says making the plan a permanent arrangement would be historic.
The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 1 in the Community Room at Sturgeon Bay’s City Hall. A brief presentation will take place at the beginning with an open-house format to follow to address questions concerning the remote operations of the three Sturgeon Bay bridges.
