Thursday morning the Teweles and Brandeis grain elevator will be on the move as it makes the close to half-mile journey across the Maple/Oregon Street Bridge to its future home near Sturgeon Bay’s Graham Park. Devooght House Movers has had the structure on eight 50-ton dolly wheel units for the last several days in preparation for the move. Drury Designs general contractor Pat Drury says he has no concerns about the bridge being able to handle the weight and size of the building.
Lights and powerlines will be moved to accommodate the structure and roads will be closed in two phases to limit traffic interruptions. The move is slated to begin at 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
