US 14 Wisconsin River Bridge
Wisconsin Department of Transportation (SW Region)
Sauk and Iowa Counties, WI
Total Estimated Cost
DAAR provided construction management for this 1.5-mile project which included the bridge replacement of an arch truss structure over the Wisconsin River in Sauk and Iowa counties, WI. The new structure is a 10-span precast concrete girder bridge supported on V-shaped piers with architecture formliner and concrete staining.
The project involved new roadway alignment, grading, marsh excavation and traffic control. The new structure was completed while maintaining traffic on existing US 14. The existing arch bridge was removed after traffic was switched to the new bridge. Coordination with WisDNR was very important as this project is within the Wisconsin Lower River way System. Extreme care had to be taken not to introduce non-native species into this ecosystem during all phases of construction.
