Gov. Walker: Approves contract to repair bridge, reconstruct recreational path in Mazomanie

Contact: Amy Hasenberg, (608) 266-2839

MADISON – Governor Scott Walker today approved a $683,050 emergency contract to repair a bridge structure and replace a recreational path in Mazomanie damaged by flooding in August.
Historic rainfall damaged the US 14 bridge over Black Earth Creek on the east side of Mazomanie and washed out the Wolf Run recreational trail located under the bridge. The work will add protection to one of the bridge piers, and restore the slope paving under the structure, the retaining wall, and the pathway washed away in the flooding.

Work will begin Monday and is expected to be completed in mid-December. Edgerton Contractors, Inc. of Oak Creek, WI is the primary contractor. The bridge will remain open to traffic during construction.
