Oshkosh Ave Bridge reopens


The transportation world of Oshkosh just became significantly easier today with the reopening of the Oshkosh Avenue Bridge. The key north side corridor has been closed since February 2020.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, updates include:

  • Surface repair to concrete bridge deck
  • Epoxy overlay of the bridge deck
  • Replacement of bridge approach slabs
  • Painting and surfacing
  • Engineering assessment work
  • Walkway improvements

Project costs were around $1.2 million, with state and federal funds covering more than 95% of improvement costs.

The bridge over the Fox River, also known as the WIS 21 Bridge, was built in 1982.

City of Oshkosh bus routes will return to their regular route and times beginning June 10, 2020.

Nearby businesses and city hall joined many in the community in celebrating the news on social media.

A key upcoming road project kicks off middle of June 2020, with County Road A to be updated between Indian Point Road and CTH GG. The work is projected to be concluded October 2020.

Wisconsin HWY 76 will remain under construction from HWY 41 up to Breezewood Lane through November 2020.
