Wisner Bridge at City Park set to reopen Saturday
The Wisner Bridge at City Park is scheduled to be back open for use by drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists this Saturday, Sept. 30.
The replaced bridge, which cost $19.5 million, was originally scheduled to be open this Spring, but the completion was pushed back due to ill-fitting equipment, according to officials. Boh Brothers Construction Co. were the project’s contractor.
The original Wisner concrete bridge was demolished in late 2015 and lasted since 1973. The bridge is reopening with a 1,800-foot-long and 65-foot-wide structure, and it includes two 12-foot-wide travel lanes and a third 12-foot-wide lane for cyclists and pedestrians.
