DOT to fix Wis. 59 overpass
Placeholder Image
MONROE - The state Department of Transportation will heat the I-beam on the Wisconsin 59 overpass to bend it back into place after a semitruck hit the I-beam on Jan. 19. The "over-sized load" the semitruck was hauling compacted against the bottom of the bridge and bent an I-beam back about 6 to 8 inches, according to Green County Highway Commissioner Jeff Wunschel. Orange flags were set up on the southbound lane of Wis. 59 because the accident weakened the load capacity of the bridge, Wunschel said.
