Wisconsin’s Department of Transportation now says the Michigan Street Bridge in Sturgeon Bay will be closed to traffic three days next week. The D-O-T announced Thursday that the span will be close for repairs August 13th, 14th and 15th from 8 AM until 4 PM. Work crews will be painting and repairing sections of the bridge. Door County Highway Department Patrol Superintendent Thad Ash believes drivers will adjust to the closures.
Ash says the repair work is for damage from a multi-car accident that took place over a year ago. The DOT says the bridge will be open to pedestrians and lift for marine traffic during the closure.
