The County Trunk M/F bridge spanning the Rock River in Indianford closed Monday, Jan. 27, and will remain closed for as many as several days to perhaps two weeks, said Black River Falls-Based Lunda Construction Project Manager Neal Miller. How long the bridge will be closed rests largely on what a three-member dive team hired by Lunda finds in the water underneath the bridge, he said.
Kenosha-based Northern Diving, LLC., has been hired to take video of the river bottom underneath the bridge, which will then be used to determine how much construction debris will be removed, Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) Civil Engineer Project Manager Marc Schweiger said. Schweiger was on site Monday to observe the process.
A crane, which was placed on the bridge Monday, will be used to lift debris from the river.
Debris fell into the river during a reconstruction project completed last year.
