Contract to Reconstruct Black Earth Bridges Approved

This week, Governor Scott Walker approved a $2.8 million emergency contract to reconstruct two US 14 bridges in Black Earth damaged by flooding in August. Walker declared a State of Emergency in Wisconsin on August 29, 2018 because of wide-spread flooding and storm damage in numerous counties.

Work to replace the bridges is underway. Construction is scheduled for completion in mid-November. Kraemer North America of Plain, WI is the primary contractor.

The project includes the replacement of the structures spanning Black Earth Creek in western Dane County.
