County Road C bridge construction project set for 2022

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) – A new construction project is set to improve the safety of a bridge in West Salem.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will be replacing parts of the bridge on County Road C, located over County Road B, the La Crosse State Trail, and Canadian pacific Railroad in West Salem.

The upcoming project will extend the life of the bridge and keep it safe to use for many years to come.

Although the bridge is still in good driving condition, the DOT says some parts underneath the structure are beginning to deteriorate.

“We’re going to remove all of the concrete deck down to the girders and put brand new concrete over top of it, so it’s got a good riding surface and to extend the life of the structure,” said Project Manager, John Bainter.

Construction is cu

rrently scheduled for 2022. The DOT is still in the early process of designing the project.
