Project Update 8/17/21
County Highway U Bridge Replacement and Resurfacing
Bloomfield, Wisconsin – June 14, 2021 through October 2021
Progress on the CTH-U bridge replacement and resurfacing project in the Town of Bloomfield encountered a delay due to an underground utility conflict. An existing fiber optic communication line was incorrectly located causing the delay. The utility line has since been relocated by AT&T, and construction on the bridge is scheduled to resume this week, 8/17/2021.
During this delay, the contractor has been able to make progress on the roadway portion of the project including preparations for new curb and gutter at the intersections, culvert replacements and installation of concrete headwalls on some larger drainage structures.
We understand that these projects are highly disruptive, but they are necessary for the long-term sustainment of County infrastructure. Walworth County is committed to maintaining its highway and bridge infrastructure in a state of good repair, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation during construction. The County and the Contractor are making every effort to complete this project this construction season.
Please feel free to call the Walworth County Public Works Department with any questions: (262) 741-3114
