Improvements to the West River Road bridge over the Oconomowoc River
to be discussed at a July 14, 2014, Public Information Meeting

Planned improvements for the West River Road bridge over the Oconomowoc River in the Town of Concord, Jefferson County, will be discussed at a Public Information meeting on Monday, July 14, 2014.  The meeting will be held at the Town of Concord Community Center, located at W1095 Concord Center Drive, Sullivan, Wisconsin 53178.  The meeting will be held prior to the regular monthly Town Board meeting.  The meeting is scheduled to start at 6:00 PM and will last until 7:00 PM.

The project involves improvements to the roadway and the structure on West River Road at the crossing of the Oconomowoc River.  The existing structure is anticipated to be replaced with a new two-span concrete flat slab bridge.  The roadway approaches will be improved by bringing them up to current roadway standards.  The structure will be closed to traffic during construction.  The project is scheduled for construction in the summer/fall of 2015.  No additional right-of-way will be required for this project.

A variety of exhibits and maps will be featured at the Public Information meeting and representatives from Town of Concord and Ayres Associates will be available to discuss the projects and answer questions.  The public is encouraged to attend to examine the proposed improvements and discuss any concerns they might have. 

Efforts will be made to accommodate the needs of hearing impaired individuals through sign language interpreters or other auxiliary aids.  To request this service, contact WI Telecommunications Relay 1-800-947-3529 (1-800-WI RELAY) for a TDD.  The Town of Concord Community Center is wheelchair accessible.
