Weekly Construction Update – August 18-22

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation provided the following update:

This week, another large bridge beam was delivered to the Verona Road (US 18/151) construction site. The beam was placed for the southbound side of the Verona Road bridge over the roundabout and frontage road system.

Watch the time-lapse video of the delivery in May 2014. It was a similar delivery process, but for the other side of Verona Road.
