Several wood piers on the Mill Street bridge are showing severe signs of decay after inspection from the WisDOT Bureau of Structures. The Columbia County Highway and Transportation Department has found it is best to not risk use of the bridge for vehicle traffic due to these signs of decay. Therefore, the Mill Street bridge is closed indefinitely to vehicle traffic. The bridge is open to pedestrian traffic until further notice or demolition.
Demolition will be slated at a later date in conjunction with the WisDOT, Columbia County Highway and Transportation Department, and the City of Lodi.
