Shawano Hwy 22 Bridge Rebuild

From the Shawano Leader.

"By Donna Hobscheid, Leader Reporter

A six-month closure of the Highway 22 bridge into Shawano may be two years off, but businesses are already concerned about access.

Reconstruction of the bridge is expected to run from April to October of 2011.

“It’s going to be a major impact on us,” said Dave Slaughter, general manager of the Comfort Inn & Suites just south of the bridge.

He was also concerned about any temporary closure of Riverbend Road, which leads to their driveway.

“We can’t close our driveway. We’re a 24-hour business,” said Slaughter, who was among about a dozen business people, municipal officials and residents who attended an information meeting Wednesday at Shawano Community High School."

Why not just build a new bridge next to the old bridge and keep the old one open till the new one is completed!

Da, sorry, that would just be too easy!

But it would cost too much! Do you really think a bridge built in 2011 will not cost more money?

Where's the stimulus?

Start building it now!

Crap or get off the pot!

Where is Steve Kagen on this?

Steve get off your dead butt and get this going!
