Davenport Street Bridge To Reopen; Work Ends For Celebrations
Work on a Rhinelander bridge is ending and a city official says it should be open soon.
The second year of work on the Rhinelander downtown Streetscape project is moving forward.
This weekend there are three different events taking place in the downtown and Public Works Director Tim Kingman says the Davenport Street bridge will be open and all the barriers downtown will be removed...
"....the Davenport Street bridge will be opening up on Friday. and we're looking forward to that opening up. I'm sure the folks on the west side of Rhinelander would just love to see that happening. This weekend there are a lot of activities downtown and with that we will remove all the barriers. We'll be setting up on Monday to do the last phase, the project's final paving...."
That paving will take place on Stevens, Rives(rye-vz) and on Pelham Streets. Kingman says if it rains, it might be delayed. He encourages people to go to the City of Rhinelander website to see updates on the project.
