Due to favorable work progress achieved during the 2013 Rhinelander Interceptor Sewer project, the city of Rhinelander will close the Davenport Street bridge Monday, Oct. 14, 2013. This bridge closure is required for underground utility pipeline replacements being completed and is anticipated to be necessary for a four week period as contracted work is completed.
The bridge closure will require use of alternate street routes. Kemp and Phillip Street bridges will remain open during this closure and provide for alternate means used to get across the Wisconsin River. It is only in the immediate vicinity of the bridge location street closure will be necessary; local business access and traffic along Anderson Street will remain open.
Attached is a map indicating the recommended alternate traffic routes to use during this time period.
