WI Department of Transportation: Statement on US 51 bridge replacement

Bridge construction is underway on US 51 over Rocky Run Creek, between Poynette and Portage, in Columbia County. US 51 is closed to through traffic at the bridge and a signed detour follows WIS 22 and WIS 16. Access remains open to local traffic and businesses.

The work operations are weather dependent and subject to change. The project is anticipated to be completed in mid-October.
