A public meeting will be held Tuesday regarding the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's plans to rehabilitate 13 bridges on Interstate 94 next year.
The open house-style meeting is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. at the United Community Center, 1028 S. 9th St., Milwaukee. Residents can learn more about the project, view exhibits, provide comments and talk with staff members representing the DOT.
The DOT between the Marquette Interchange and Howard Avenue starting in the spring of 2013, further impacting the commute for residents traveling to and from downtown.
The work will include bridge deck overlays or replacements, bridge repair and painting, according to the DOT's website.
Plans call for one lane to be closed during the construction. Officials say they wanted to get the bridge work done before the Hoan Bridge and Zoo Interchange projects, as that stretch of I-94 will be used for detours.
