Summary

Construction is scheduled to begin shortly after the July 4, 2019 holiday weekend and continue through October 2019.  The Okee Bridge is expected to remain open through Labor Day weekend and then be closed from about September 3, 2019 until the project is completed.

The waterway under the bridge is to remain open to boat traffic at all times.  However due to the work, there may be times when boat traffic may have to briefly wait for the contractor to accommodate them to pass under the bridge.  The contractor will be placing navigational markers in the water.

Proposed improvements include the realignment of CTH V at the Shamrock Road/Old Sauk Road intersection, replacing the existing bridge deck and rehabilitating the existing bridge structure on the causeway and providing sidewalk and additional parking to improve safety for pedestrians and vehicles.
