If you normally travel on the Bong Bridge weekdays, you may want to find an alternate route until August 24 to avoid lane closures while crews perform routine inspections.

According to the Douglas County Highway Department, US 2 westbound and eastbound lanes on the Bong Bridge over the St. Lous River will have single lane closures during weekdays through Thursday, August 23.  Lane closures will be limited to Monday through Thursday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and will impact the right, or outside lanes only.

If you are traveling on Bong Bridge during the inspection process, be prepared for slower travel and please drive with caution as there will be work crews and equipment on the bridge.

You can follow this and other projects through the Douglas County Highway Department Facebook page, or through the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
